    Let's think about that, hmm, maybe the most successful operating system in the world, running on countless servers, clusters, phones, embedded devices, ... . Maybe also Nvidia actually starting to cooperate?
    Of course, the whole programming thing is not what it should be - it should be perfect, like science, like 2+2=4, but somehow people made it like art - no one knows why it works or why doesnt work, so yeah, the whole conception of ~60's must be burned and everything must be done in the right way from zero, because this technology wont lead to anything "wow", especially this "free cheese".
    Feel free to show us your new concept of programming, it sounds like you have a much better insight in all this stuff then the countless studied people inventing programming paradigms, languages, ... . Present us your ideas how to make it better, show us exactly where the flaws are.

      It's kind of remarkable to think about just how amazing X is.

      Here's to another 30 years!

                  To put it into simple terms...in it's basic form, a compositor takes images (1, 2, n...) and combines them into a single image before displaying them on the screen. If you have all effects turned off in your compositor (kwin, xfwm, openbox, icewm, etc.), then this is all that happens (well, aside from the basic stacking/ordering and other misc things that all window managers do).

                  Shadows, wobbly windows, fade-in/out, etc., are effects which are ancillary to, however not required for, composition. They need not be enabled, and have no benefit except to those who appreciate them.

                    Currently I don't care about wayland one way or another, I am just going to keep on using awesomeWM for the foreseeable future. But what I don't get is why tear-free/every frame perfect is considered so great by wayland people that they made it the centerpiece. As long as it isn't tearing constantly or something, who cares?

                      Tearing is extremely irritating.
