A New X.Org-Free Wayland LiveCD Released
For technology demos and testing, the "first true Wayland LiveCD" has been released that can start Wayland directly without depending upon an X.Org environment.
Announced on Friday was a new version of Rebecca Black OS, a distribution that provides an easy way to start Wayland from a LiveCD and try out its various demos.
The new version of the oddly-named Linux operating system has a new log-in manager that fully runs on a Wayland Weston server and no longer involves X within the boot process. X was previously depended upon for using the LightDM login manager, but that's now been replaced by a custom solution to provide an X.Org-free environment. Of course, however, there's still support for using XWayland.
More details on the new release can be found via the mailing list announcement.
