The future of X Windows

Fri Dec 21, 2012 10:00 am

I know we're all looking forward to hardware acceleration coming to X on the Pi, and the guy doing it has put an awful lot of effort into that. However, I followed links from http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=n ... px=MTIyMzc and was able to have a play with Wayland & Weston, and I'm absolutely blown away. I seriously believe that the day W&W are fully released for the Pi will effectively be Day One compared to everything that came before, as regards the desktop environment at least.

It is quite simply superb.

Hi,
I also think that the pi will benefit from the wayland project.
During the next weeks I don't have the time to give it a try, but I hope to try it as soon as possible
Does xwayland work on your pi for running X11 applications on wayland?
