I love this. I just hope it can deliver on its goals, which is a tear-free graphics system.

It wouldn't be fun to go through a rough phase of changes across the graphics stack, only to find nothing has changed for the better.

Also, I hope wayland will solve the problem of smooth transitions between bootsplash, login screen and desktop.
