    Phoronix: Lubuntu Planning Switch To Wayland, Porting Openbox To Mir

    Ubuntu derivative Lubuntu that is now using the LXQt desktop environment has laid out more of their plans to switch over to Wayland rather than the existing X.Org based session...

        It doesn't. Latest official Lubuntu release is using LXDE.

          wayland regards with the protocol while MIR regards with the compositor so that wayland matches with mir.

            I think he wanted to talk about Qt Wayland Compositor which is the Qt Wayland implementation for a Qt QML compositor.
            Mir seems to have its way to go, Qt Wayland Compositor allows more flexibility (I think... but someone experimenting with one or another can confirm ?)

              However 2 years before to implement it is too long time.

                Why? X.Org isn't running away and Wayland will have matured further by then. Then can take 4 years for all I care.

                  OpenBox is not a complex piece of software. Two years to implement / port suggests something else is at fault. I am assuming an immature API / Wayland is to blame.

                  That's too long. Wayland will have disappeared by then haha .

                    Lack of developer time perhaps?
