I mean that DRI2 was an improvement, but still there are quite a few things Windows and Mac OS X (iOS) are way better because of the way the hardware is made available to the drivers.

DRI2 still has quite a few issues when trying to push the graphics hardware.

That is why a kind of DRI3 is being considered.

I am all for Wayland.
