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'll be more impressed if windows can resize smoothly with all the compositing effects. Window resizing on Linux has been terrible since GTK+ started using Cairo for everything.

Hmmh, it would be interesting to know how big changes we should be expecting to rendering speeds with any graphics libraries / toolkits.

All I can say at the moment is that the rendering windows, tilting, zooming, etc. on my Atom is really fast (60fps) and without hiccups and tearing. Butter smooth.
