I'd say you're over-simplifying. :) There were large changes in both the
X server itself and the various hardware drivers in F10, and there are
equally large (or possibly even larger) changes for F11 too. Some things
that were broken in F10 are fixed in F11. Some things that were broken
in F10 are currently still broken in F11. And a few things are broken in
F11 that weren't broken in F10. Obviously we're trying to make sure the
first group of things is as large as possible and the other two as
small, but please don't over-promise, it frequently leads to
disappointment :)
