    Because the design of X is fundamentally different from Wayland..

    Except that now there is(and has been for quite some time) a Free compiler for Ada: GNAT, yet "fans" still think that to have a safe language you have to use Rust, a language which isn't even at its...

    1) this is more a toolkit issue than an X issue.

    You're being very specific! My own prediction are more fuzzy but in the same ballpark: 2014 beta/early adopters, 2015 safe.

    Not in the way, you're suggesting it.. What you forget is that you must think first about the developers not the SW.

    That's the way to go

    Given that Wayland's design imply that many things which were done by the X server are now done by the clients, I hope that these kind of 'support' library will become common, otherwise there will be...

    I think your explanation are a bit off

    1) X doesn't have only 'text that look ugly': what about the X render extension which provide glyph cache?

    2) In current X implementation the window manager and the X server are two different...

    I would say due to its design, and stop here: Linux is probably an even better "low latency kernel" now that it has a real time patch, but this doesn't mean that the OSs based on Linux are better as...

    What you missed is that Mir has a protocol, but it's an internal one that clients are not supposed to implement directly: they link with a Mir client library which implements the protocol.

    No Wayland doesn't prevent this but as it doesn't provide this:
