    Germany, France, Italy average 7-8 weeks of paid vacation, add unpaid / timebanked days to that.
    While true, Kristian lives in America, I believe.

    Is there any news about dri3 and drivers switching over to it?

    I think that has to be done before things like present and nuclear page flipping can be taken advantage of.

    That only affects X11: Wayland can already take advantage of these.

    I don't know, but if that graphics are correct... there are very impressive! O_o
    I read your link and seems like Wayland uses less power than X11, at least for arm users. The link has even a graphic of Wayland power usage versus X11 power usage. Anyone knows if a notebook user could get advantage from this?

    The lack-of-copies would help power efficiency and performance, I would think. But part of the power efficiency bump is that Wayland can properly take advantage of all of the decoder / encoder blocks on a given SOC whilst I don't believe X11 can, or is very limited in that regard at least.
