Your comments to this list are not off-topic in my view. A discussion of
which versions of X are required for this or that video card is well
within the domain of general.

The thread is borderline, but so long as it is about X support it belongs
on general. As soon as it devolves into a Holy War over which video
card is The Spawn of the Great Satan it belongs to chat.
