I've heard Tony Kenny speak a couple of times.
He really is an engaging speaker, but more importantly
he's very pragmatic, saying what's bad as well as good.
This is much more convincing IMHO. There are a few
pertinent docs out there. The first hit is informative:

X has 2 clipboards. There is a selection buffer which is updated
automatically when you select any text. You can paste from this
buffer by clicking the middle mouse button.
Then there is the clipboard (which can be managed using
the xclipboard utility), which works like the windows equivalent
(Ctrl+Insert or Ctrl+c for copy, and Shift+Insert or Ctrl+v for paste)
Note gnome-terminal uses Shift+Ctrl+c and Shift+Ctrl+v instead.
Note when you copy something in an X application
and you close it, the content of the clipboard and selection
buffer is lost (unless you use an external app to manage the
clipboard (like xclipboard)).
