No More "X"s please !!
Is it just me or are others getting irritated by the letter X in almost everything? XSL,XAML,XML,XHTML, XSD,XUL ,, blah blah blah.
You know, you're Xing out a LOT of good technology with that decision.

So, you don't want any presents for X-mas this year!?! Are you NUTS?!?
What about all the Gs and Ks on Linux desktops? :p
And yeah, Es :)
I don't know if the OP was making a joke, but really it is quite logical that all those technologies listed start with an X as they are all related to or based off XML in some form.
Ah, sorry, but the system I work on uses Xilinx CPLDs. It's hard to go to work and avoid Xs. The PC I use, although a W2K system, runs an X server so I can access the Linux box at the end of the bench. The XEmacs editor has been ported to run directly on Windows, so in spite of the name, it doesn't require an X server.
f(x) = a0 + a1x + a2x^2 + ...
I kind of know what the OP means, especially as the "X" is short for *e*xtensible.

But surely XXX is good?
If you won't use XP, Linux, or OS X, your options are pretty limited.
Oh, bummer! Only XP, Linux and OS X?
