wouldn't these kind of problems be solved if GGI was used ... I don't want
to start a war or anything ... and nor do I know too much about GGI ..
just what i heard ... seems to be a holy war out there :) ...

but if a program could access graphics without being root (is this the
problem with root ??? i don't play it) then it would not be affected by
such a virus ...

or using the X version right????
