    Even the kernel could, but should it?

    There are lots of stuff done in the display manager. If we cram all these into wayland, wouldn't that make it another X? Even a worse one?

    And remember...

    AFAIK, ubuntu is not leaving LightDM. But it is deeply integrating with Mir and thus not being ported to wayland. Now, the community needs to do all the heavy lifting to support wayland.

    Then, how are you supposed to type in your password, select a session etc? Do you have an alternative design?

    The point is, you dont have to write sudo. It will check the policy and do "the right thing", shutting down right away, asking for a password or simply give an error.

    Well, it is more like a number components working together consistently. It is much better than the mess that is system startup scripts written in bash.

    Well, this is more logical than the technical reasons behind mir. Maybe they even have a revenue sharing deal with phoronix.

    I could do a much better version of this demo within a couple of hours, on top of pure EGL/KMS without even requiring modified mesa drivers. I think I should start a new display server, too. ;)

    Suspend and hibernate support landed now in git master. It can use either systemd or upower. In case of systemd hybridsleep can be used too, if supported by the system.

    Well, for my card r600g is _the_ less performant driver. The proprietary driver should be more performant.

    Regarding apps using OpenGL, performance probably wouldn't be limited by the graphics...

    SDDM ported to QtQuick2

    I have ported SDDM to Qt5, which was indeed pretty easy. Now, the same code base can be compiled for both Qt4 and Qt5.

    I have made a quick test of QtQuick2. By changing ~10 lines of qml code, I...

    Probably. We have similar goals. In fact, I started SDDM to be the login manager for SDE (Simple Desktop Environment). A fast, simple and beautiful desktop environment based on QtQuick2/Wayland.
