      wayland by itself is nothing. it's basically DRI on steroids. all rendering is directly from applications to the compositor. the hard work is porting the toolkits and WMs, not writing "wayland code". is mutter even wayland ready yet? i know gtk is basically done

        I'm fully aware of that. Want Phoronix to check for every project that had plans on supporting Wayland? I'm not taking the time of doing so.

          not really. but I often get the impression that people think that wayland needs a lot of work. not really. mesa, toolkits, cairo, WMs need lot of work. even the whole GDM/login issue thing is not resolved yet. wayland by itself is basically done.

                  Roughly 1 million for the server, according to Ohloh. http://www.ohloh.net/p/xorg-server
                  There are two repository entries though, so migth be that its actually ~500K
                  2.5M for the whole project, though this also includes things that Wayland can/will make use of, like Mesa. http://www.ohloh.net/p/x

                    Watch them start saying that Mir is so good it making Wayland developers give up.

                      Thanks, that's an interesting comparison. I realise they're not directly comparable, but when the X server is many times the size in terms of codebase then it really hits home how much more streamlined Wayland is.

                        When you're creating API and protocols, seems to me you spend most of the time designing, documenting and little time coding.
                        I don't know what you expected to look like by making such comment.

They should just admit failure already.
                          Yeah, how dare they try to keep the keep base lean and focused.

                          Let me guess, if it was a lot of lines of code, you would be complaining about it being bloated.

                            Sure, whatever you say.

                            And I notice you ignore the first part of what I said.

                              LOL
                              So what really matter is the LOC number?
                              If you need to memorize 10 numbers, do you utilize 10 variables (choice A) or do you utilize an array (choice B)?
                              Well, if you utilize 10 variables, you will write more LOC and the stupid people like BO$$ will be happy.
                              Unfortunately, the rest of the world will laugh to you so much.
