X Window System is old

Yep, but works pretty good. It allows for very smart and useful
things, like separating execution from presentation.

not optimized

I wouldn't say so.


Slow? Have you ever seen Xgl?

not secure (uses root much), accesses the video hardware
directly (thats the kernel's job !)

it cannot do VNC, etc.

What? You must be kidding. There's an module which adds support
for VNC. It's built-in an I haved used it in the past to remotely
control some of my machines.
