Xorg doesn't need to be replaced, its x11 that needs to be deprecated, and the lead developers of Wayland are working for Xorg and wayland uses the same new graphic driver model that Xorg/x11 uses. We don't need rivality, we need cooperation, and idealy Xorg could adopt Wayland as the new recomended protocol for GUI toolkits and supply a rootless X11 on top of wayland for legacy application.


Correct, I should have said 'xserver' instead of Xorg considering that Wayland is replacing xserver rather than the 'whole stack'. Hopefully it'll translate very soon in an Xorg release that will have xserver completely replaced.
