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.

Everything that I have been hearing about Wayland is that is going to rock the butts off with dead light fast rendering and every desktop being pixel perfect. If this is really true, then desktop linux just have the potential to rise again (X is definitely a load of crap, specially when you have to kill it).

Come on, desktop devs. Start working your butts off right now!
