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."

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


That's impressive, and I'd really like to think that Wayland will make such a difference; the current stack is a mess. However, I couldn't help but notice how he used two different distributions in the video, where the graphic server might not be the only difference. Also, he could have used composition under X as well, though I don't know how much difference would that have made.
