Excerpts from Paul Davis's message of 2011-02-22 03:14:31 +0100:
I'm not sure it helps to talk about wayland, it seems to be very much
future music. It seems ubuntu and fedora talk about a year or so, but
after reading up about its current state (three years of development so
far, pretty much proof of concept, working with some drivers only,
crashing all over the place in the video demos) it seems to me that five
years is a more realistic estimate (rather longer if we talk about
replacing X). Just my guess, but it seems far from being in a reliably
working state, so it's future music.
Also, I don't see what's supposed to be so great about it, besides
removing X11 cruft.
