Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Finally. Finally the leader of a major distribution who has the guts to stand up and say what a lot of people have known for a long time, but didn't dare to say because it usually leads to a storm of criticism. Mark Shuttleworth has announced that Ubuntu will be moving away from X.org, opting to go with Wayland instead.

To be more specific, applications talk to the kernel window manager and rendering system (both implemented in win32k.sys). There is no RPC involved AFAIK.

The kernel renderer has display drivers (the old XPDM-style drivers), one of which is the Remote Desktop display driver that converts the drawing and/or the drawn data to send out over the network.
