    Because it has less developers and have been developed for a shorter periode...

    You won't have to edit xorg.conf because it will be Wayland that will be talking to the hardware, so there will be no need to touch xorg at all (instead, you'll just have XWayland, which provides backwards compatibility for X applications, but it runs as an application-specific rootless X server over Wayland). Monitor handling is probably also going to be improved in Wayland, at least I've heard it should make multi-monitor setups easier to handle.

    So after a month the world will just be a hole in the ground? Any way aske them how they solved the network issue.

    By carving holes and updating the bsp, it has a good chunk of limitations, but it is a bout the best you can do with the current tech.

    I'm skeptical that Wayland (or Mir) would be able to provide any significant performance improvement over DRI2 in X.

    Not saying there aren't other advantages, however.

    Obviously, with the plan to make every piece of the world fully destructible,the world will heal itself over x amount of time,or be replaced with user created content with there EverQuest Landmark (Landmark allows players to claim land then build whatever they want) thus not to render an area useless.

    oh noooo The Mir/Wayland war has found its way to this thread!

    On a serious note, and it may end up being a lame question, but why deal in numbers that are not concrete? Steam has every member's info. Why cant it query their members profiles and have specific numbers regarding what platform they are using?

    I am damn thankful for the work porting games over to Linux. Kidney stone operation kept me sidelined for a few weeks and I have been killing quite a few zombies from Killing Floor.

    Tim Sweeney said that voxel cone tracing is used to calculate lighting only in UE4.
