This is not really competition for X.org. It's a playground test BY a Freedesktop developer. And X.org is progressing along quite quickly at the moment. So much of the stack is being replaced, rewritten and redesigned that I imagine within 2-3 years, it will be quite different from what we saw during the XFree86 days, if it isn't already. KMS, GEM, DRI2, Composite, Gallium3D, XInput2, evdev -- all these things have happened since the end of XFree86 and there's more coming down the pipeline.
