Awesome stuff; hopefully this will translate into something that'll replace the current Xorg within the next couple of years. It is depressing to see many operating systems who rely on Xorg being held back because of the current state of affairs.There are many operating systems that rely on Xorg that would really show their true power only if they had a way of providing a better way of the GUI being handled than the current situation.
your comment does not make sense. You have operating system at the bottom, X.org in the middle and window managers+GUI toolkits+desktop environments features dependent of their toolkits widget capabilities+other stuff.
X.org problems hinders stuff that sit ontop of it, not below it and operating systems are not supposed to expose their functionality to GUI applications and hence no operating system should be dependent and held back by X.
