X11, Window Managers "This is the first real release of Wayland and Weston. Wayland is the protocol and IPC mechanism while Weston is the reference compositor implementation. The 0.85 branch in both repositories is going to be protocol and interface stable. We have a series of protocol changes on the table before 1.0 but this branch marks a stable point before we jump into that." Change is coming to the Linux world. And yes, I get the irony of using this particular icon, but it's the closest I could find.

But I also read that it will support graphical effects with more responsiveness, which I'm not so sure is a good thing--I'm not too crazy about all the graphical crap they add to desktops these days, and in this way Wayland has the potential to allow even more with less of a performance penalty.

If this is true then I'm all for it. I'm not saying we need graphical effects whizzing around all the time, but for portable devices like tablets it makes sense in order to compete with stuff like the iPad. I wonder if Nokia is still considering a MeeGo tablet... Qt5 will support Wayland.
