X11, Window Managers Wayland 1.0 was officialy released on October 22. Wayland is a protocol for a compositor to talk to its clients as well as a C library implementation of that protocol. 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. The clients can be traditional applications, X servers (rootless or fullscreen) or other display servers.

X on user space

Maybe it is a good time to push X completely to the user space (over different native toolkits, win32, haiku wayland, quartz and why not Plan 9) and use as a fallback mode an abstraction layer like SDL.

Just my opinion.
