X11, Window Managers "Although current discussion of the Linux desktop tends to focus on the disharmony around Unity and the GNOME shell, the true revolution on the desktop is taking place out of sight of users. The Wayland display server is expected to reach version 1.0 later this year, and is seen by many as the long term replacement for the X Window System, with real potential to improve and transform the performance of the desktop for Linux users."

That's a really simple way of describing it. +1!

I use the network capabilities of X on a regular basis and until there is a comparable feature in Wayland both are going to be living together for a few years yet.

The first time i opened up a remote nautilus window at work from my laptop at home; i was sold.
