    Phoronix: Microsoft Is Writing Its Own Wayland Compositor As Part Of WSL2 GUI Efforts

    Microsoft is working on its own Wayland compositor derived from the Weston code-base...

    Obviously obvious development is obvious.... Of course they would develop their own Wayland compositor. Their Winux distro will be needing it once it is ready.

      Wow. A lot of Microsoft in the news since the last refresh...
      Maybe they are getting eager to take over the world through this new-found way and having a hard time holding back?

        I just wish Microsoft made it possible to write cross-platform GUI applications on .NET Core that works on Linux. It is possible today with the third-party framework Avalonia. But it would be nice if it was officially supported in any way, such as Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) or UWP or WinUI.

          If Microsoft do a better job implementing wayland faster this is going to be another embarrassment.

            And where is this fledged fanboy saying they should choose X instead? On more serious note is M$ evolving or preparing to backstab?

              I want this trash to stay away from Linux.

                Isn't that exactly what is their .NET MAUI about? It was announced today or yesterday I think.

                  Seriously I think MS have already evolved. Times have changed, today they make big $$$ from Linux and FOSS in general and they are not stupid to try to destroy it.

                    So, what is this, another closed source garbage from Microsoft?
                    I wish that the Linux kernel and other open source software would have a license that would forbid any not open source software to use it.
                    Microsoft with all these compatibility layers for Linux will hinder a lot the real Linux desktop adoption.
                    Many people seeing that Linux stuff works on Windows too will have no real incentive to move to Linux and many employers will force us to use garbage OSes like Windows 10 saying that the needed Linux tools work on Windows too.
