    you entirely missed what I was getting at. If Valve goes Wayland, games will go wayland, if Valve goes Mir, games will go Mir, if Valve sticks with X, games will stick with X. Why? because they control the distribution standard that developers targeting linux will now be writing to called SteamOS nothing else really matters.

    And you're entirely missing the point, besides games, LibreOffice, Firefox, and Chrome, what percentage of the software do you use on a day to day basis that isn't using either GTK, Qt, or EFL?
