X11, Window Managers "This is the first real release of Wayland and Weston. Wayland is the protocol and IPC mechanism while Weston is the reference compositor implementation. The 0.85 branch in both repositories is going to be protocol and interface stable. We have a series of protocol changes on the table before 1.0 but this branch marks a stable point before we jump into that." Change is coming to the Linux world. And yes, I get the irony of using this particular icon, but it's the closest I could find.

Good move. Issues like X.org's video tearing are what makes third party developers run away from Linux. Nvidia's drivers actually replace a significant part of X to make things work, and this is because they are paid big $$$ by companies who use Linux for rendering. Other companies like ATI just don't care and rely on what X provides, and you get nasty tearing effects and other nastiness. Then they throw the source and hardware specs to the community just to show the world the community can't write good graphic card drivers without replacing at least a part of X either.

I would actually want to see a Wayland for audio too, and not PulseAudio which is yet another attempt to put plaster on top of something broken (ALSA).

If you don't fix the graphics and audio stack, real developers like Pinnacle and Adobe won't come no matter how hard you whine in their forums. The only succes history of Linux on the consumer space is Android, and this is because it did the brave move of providing a new audio and video stack.

Too bad all they put out is useless binary blob garbage. No thanks.
