You will have to look beyond yourself and ask whether it has been a
improvement in general (creating Xorg configuration by poking hardware
directly, bypassing the kernel is way more fragile than
auto-configuration in majority of systems for example) and then
understand that much of the changes are just made in any free and open
source software project by developers implementing those changes. In the
case of major software like the Linux kernel and Xorg, these changes are
in majority made by vendors to meet customer requirements (which I would
count as meeting user needs even though this is no democracy) and these
changes are made upstream for the most part. I don't see hostility in
any of this.
