    why do you say non free?

      KDE and/or Qt probably touched a nerve in some way.

        well that is a bit shortsighted opinion, Qt is tackleing many things at once[community/digia togheter] and its already supporting Wayland very close to Gtk+ level. I mean GTK+ is great but they have less issues to focus compared to Qt5/KF5, for example:

        1.) KDE project is trimming all the fat from KDElibs and integrating all the useful features back to QtCore[will help tons for portability]
        2.) Wayland required bit more time on Qt due to scenegraphs integration, proper EGL/GLES, proper window management abstraction[QPA], QML composite API, QObject integration for wayland events, etc
        3.) Qt is focusing in parallel in android/iOS/BB10 ports too
        4.) Massive improvement in X11 codepath through abstraction and XCB migration
        5.) KDE wanted to leave a very stable 4.11 revision before focus totally in KF5 to avoid another 4.0 release situation
        6.) phasing out KDM and focus on a lean solution and systemd logind for wayland/XCB[for now QDDM seem the best candidate]

        my point is both have different fronts to attack and different timescales to do it, i mean is awesome that gnome is getting wayland in september and is awesome that KDE is focusing in wayland, efficiency and portability for later next year and is awesome that EFL will go for wayland too in december

          He's just yet another Phoronix troll trying to cause controversy by spreading FUD and lies about open source projects.

                GNOME is focussed on Wayland, KDE as well. Move along, nothing to see except respect.

                  Noble deeds? You make it should like they are trying to find a cure for cancer. How are they proving that they are going at a "higher development pace"? Given your track record, I'd be highly surprised if you could prove it, given that facts or even reality are not exactly your forte.

                  Quite a wonderful contradiction in terms. So you are saying that they are introducing a tweal [sic] tool to restore the "anti" features. If they are, then isn't that an admission that those "anti-features" are in fact features that people actually want?

                  Also, given that they are insisting on having a tweak tool just to simply enable features that people want, instead of having the options built into GNOME and its programmes by default is indicative that as a whole the developers are still failing to properly listen to their users?

                    I'd be very interested to see gnome/wayland running on a raspberrypi. potentially the performance could be quite good.
