          The lag is caused by the screencast program:

          In this video it is a bit choppy due to the screencaster. In reality it feels much snappier and smoother.

                Damn... Even videos with screencast induced lag shows why we need Wayland! Wayland and proper free AMD drivers and here is NO area where the crap from MS will be able to perform better.

                  Weston has a built in wcap utility that records directly to webm video.

                    So how do you actually build it for wayland?

                    Code:
                    launching '/usr/bin/orbital-client'
                    launch
                    Failed to load platform plugin "wayland". Available platforms are: 
                    linuxfb
                    minimal
                    offscreen
                    xcb
                    edit: ok, that message is from qt5. My qtwayland doesn't seem to work.
