    So does this mean NVIDIA support for Wayland is confirmed?

      It's well known that NVIDIA has been working on Wayland support for a while now.

          Once Wayland supports not applying compositing to full screen games and NVIDIA publishes a Wayland driver, I have no reason to use X.org anymore. It will be finally nice to not have to use technology made 20 years ago for a graphics card made yesterday.

            Six phoronix links and two bonus links for donations confirmed.

              Window mangers and DEs still need to catch up. KDE on Wayland is still WIP. But hopefully that will happen soon.

                Michael, these constant snipes at those who use AdBlock are unbecoming. Don't blame your readers for holes in your business model! You might not be making as much money as you hoped for, but bitterness is not going to help.

                I'm sending you a tip right now.

                  I'd prefer that the source would be listed as a first link. That's proper reporting.

                    I will approve of their efforts when Linus switches fingers - middle to thumb.
