Fedora Core Well, what do we have here? It turns out that Ubuntu isn't the only Linux distribution who took a left turn off the X.org highway, now driving on a road that will eventually lead to replacing X.org with Wayland. Fedora's 'graphics cabal', as they call themselves, have explained themselves on Fedora's devel mailing list. They also explain how network transparency can be added to Wayland in a number of different ways, making the mailing list thread intriguing reading material. Also, everybody happy with the headline? No panties in twists this time around...?

Surprising?

This is hardly surprising since Wayland is a Red Hat engineers project... I have considered it somewhat inevitable since GEM and KMS went into the kernel that something like Wayland would come about. I'm not even entirely convinced this qualifies as news, heh.
