The compositor can be a standalone display server running on Linux kernel modesetting and evdev input devices, an X application, or a wayland client itself.

Now that I've seen they're aiming for network transparency in some form I would really like to try it out when it starts hitting repos.

As long as I can ssh a nautilus window from home at work I'll give wayland a go.
While X is better than it was when I started using Linux, it doesn't get enough money/attention to keep up.

Hopefully wayland can keep it simple.
