xorg version and xorg.conf

Dear all,

Since when we don't need to create [FILE]xorg.conf[/FILE] anymore? I am asking this question because of this article: http://www.zdnet.co.uk/blogs/jamies-mostly-linux-stuff-10006480/pclinuxos-kde-20116-released-10022982/

Is this thing applies for FreeBSD too?

I think this came about when Xorg started depending on HAL. Which happened a few versions ago.

It was even before HAL.

Unless Xorg isn't autodetecting something properly, then no, you don't need an [FILE]xorg.conf[/FILE] file?
