Linux "Today I pushed out a new ISO of my Wayland Live CD project, which is named for my favorite celebrity. For this new Wayland CD, I wrote a new login manager with Bash and Zenity and Expect (and Script) that fully runs on a Wayland server (weston). Now X is no longer involved in the boot process, and X does not start, (unless you use an X application with xwayland), because I replaced LightDM with the new loginmanager."

I have no tried this particular distro but I'm using Wayland as my primary display server on my Fedora installation (Fedora 20/rawhide). It works perfectly well.

This video shows nicely how big difference Wayland makes on Raspberry Pi: http://www.collabora.com/videos/rpi-wayland-demo-720p.webm
