Linux "Today I pushed out a new ISO of my Wayland Live CD project, which is named for my favorite celebrity. For this new Wayland CD, I wrote a new login manager with Bash and Zenity and Expect (and Script) that fully runs on a Wayland server (weston). Now X is no longer involved in the boot process, and X does not start, (unless you use an X application with xwayland), because I replaced LightDM with the new loginmanager."

Wow! 42 comments on a site title OSNews, and not a single comment about actually testing the LiveCD, or experiences using Wayland, or anything even remotely technical. ;)

Has anyone actually tried the LiveCD yet? Has anyone actually played with Wayland/Weston?

Nobody can, apparently, because they all live in BFE with no decent internet connection. Didn't you read the first 25 comments?

I tried it on VMware with 3D acceleration and it was so glitchy that I closed it after 1-2 min of using it.

Yup, if I were the person who had produced this liveCD, I would be slashing *my* wrists over the fact hardly anyone has made a comment directly about the Wayland experience available through it.
