KDE KDE is working on some interesting stuff. Wayland support for one, but they're also going to work on the frameworks for... KDE 5.0. Yes, I'd say KDE 4 still is far, far from done, but 5.0 is already on the horizon. This time around though, they're not going to pull a KDE 4.0, since this is mostly going to be about lower-level changes.

3) currently Wayland developers seems to prefer that a program manage totally how it displays itself, so if you have a stuck application, you won't be able to killl/iconify the window.


Isn't that the job of the window manager and compositor under waylaid?

Wayland devs have already indicated that they prefer client side decorations, something the kwin devs do not like at all and hope to counter. Nevertheless it seems to be the only objection the kwin devs have against Wayland. Network transparancy can still be achieved if necessary, but the future will show if the X-type-of-network-transparancy is required to have a good functional system.
