    Actually wlroots has a pretty sizeable amount of developers contributing code. And you also have mutter, kwin and weston for alternative wayland implementations.

      This is kind of half true. X11 is only full of spaghetti hacks right now because its 30+ years old, and back then graphics technology was very different to what it is now. In the past the composition/desktop stack was very different to what it is now (both from a technology level and what people expected). However in the past 5-7 years, there hasn't really been any big changes as is evidenced by Microsofts WDDM which was introduced when vista came around and hasn't seen serious changes since then.

        I used Linux in the late 90s, so not much spaghetti code as I don't recall any differences from what I have now - and, no, I don't use compositing because I find it distacting and it also adds latency.
