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.
Xorg doesn't need to be replaced, its x11 that needs to be deprecated, and the lead developers of Wayland are working for Xorg and wayland uses the same new graphic driver model that Xorg/x11 uses. We don't need rivality, we need cooperation, and idealy Xorg could adopt Wayland as the new recomended protocol for GUI toolkits and supply a rootless X11 on top of wayland for legacy application.
