    Phoronix: Video Showing Off Hawaii Desktop Running On Wayland

    If you're curious about the state of the Qt5-powered Hawaii Desktop running natively on Wayland, a new video has been uploaded that nicely shows off this new Linux desktop alternative that's designed around Wayland...

    Resizing of the windows seems slow. Any ideas?

      Let's stick with Xorg.

        Everything seems slow. Maybe the video recording is causing this.

          I remember trying it like 6 months ago and it was way faster than in this video, so yeah I guess it's caused by the video capture. Maybe he ran it in a vm also ?

          Anyway, is it simple to build it right now ?

            That looks too slow for a very simple lightweight desktop at low resolution .
            Lucky , i will be using X for at least the next five to ten years

              Hopefully I will be using Wayland next summer. The video recordings really don't matter, you have to try it yourself in order to judge.

                IIRC, a backend was added for accelerated video capture using quicksync (assuming he's running a snb or higher intel).
                Perhaps someone could make a generic one with plugins for vaapi and vdpau?
