Proposing A Wayland System Compositor Protocol
Phoronix: Proposing A Wayland System Compositor Protocol
There's been mixed talks in the past about having Wayland serve as a system compositor while on Friday a new proposal was initiated in terms of planning a Wayland System Compositor Protocol...
Hardware acceleration is very important here.
When fullscreen performance is important!
(Not only in fullscreen but in fullscreen when the compositor doesn't have to do anything it shouldn't be a performance bottleneck.)
Synchronization is important.
Lower latency vs bandwidth.
Once input latency is low enough you can focus on keeping time delays constant.
