X11, Window Managers Kristian Hogsberg, Red Hat Xorg developer started a new project for creating a display manager called Wayland a while back. Now, a Clutter backend has been developed for it. Last month, Wayland got DRI2 support which itself was initiated by the same developer. Direct Rendering Infrastructure improvements are among one of the key Fedora 11 features.

Wayland actually has less number of layers than Xorg and is not really comparable at all. Read about it at

Krh is the guy behind many of the important advancements in Xorg including AIGLX and DRI2 and I suspect his experiments are going to improve the state of Linux Desktop quite a bit.
