In recent days we have been talking a lot about Ubuntu's plans
to deploy the Wayland Display Server
and the new Wayland activity
, NVIDIA's plans to not support Wayland
, and John Carmack's interests to support Wayland
, but that isn't the only solution in the world. Red Hat's Adam Jackson has addressed the Fedora plans to support Wayland.
Adam had the following to say on the mailing list
Well, the Fedora graphics cabal is basically me, Kevin Martin, and Dave Airlie, and since we were hanging out at Plumbers last week and talked about this, here's the rough consensus I think we reached:
Wayland's not a usable default yet. It'll probably be packaged in F15 as something you can play with. We don't even have a complete list of transition criteria yet, let alone a timeframe for switching the default. But it's likely to happen eventually because it's a serious win for a lot of things, and the downsides are pretty negligible despite the fear from the peanut gallery.
So eventually, Fedora will switch to the Wayland Display Server.
