    Phoronix: Hawaii Desktop Is Now Usable On Wayland/Weston

    The lead developer behind the Hawaii Desktop Environment now believes that their Qt Quick 2 desktop is now in a usable state for Wayland and can run fine on the Weston compositor...

      pretty sure it's not an April fools joke considering here it is running on framebuffer in December http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0oaENN1kCE

      it would actually surprise me if it didn't run on wayland by now.

        Technically that was already Wayland, just on the framebuffer instead of KMS
        Hawaii used to run on Green Island which is a Wayland compositor made with QML that uses the QtCompositor API and now there's also support for Weston
        QtCompositor is considered experimental for the upcoming Qt 5.1, while I really prefer QML over C code Weston has many more features.

        Going to see how XWayland work today

        Yikes!

          Ah. It's hard to find real news on the 1st

          Glad to hear a wayland is getting a nice supporting desktop. Weston looks pretty good on my desktop.. if you could launch X apps on it I may actually consider running it
