    Phoronix: Taiwins Wayland Compositor Switches From WLROOTS To Its Own Library

    Taiwins debuted last year as a compact Wayland compositor and focused on being modular with Wayland scripting support. Up to now Taiwins relied upon the WLROOTS effort born out of the Sway project for doing much of the Wayland heavy-lifting but the developer has now replaced it with its own Wayland support library...

          Let me guess: this is going to be the next controversial name topic as "Taiwin" sounds an awful lot like "Taiwan", which has a politically controversial status?

          (just for the record: I'm not in favor of renaming it, I'm just saying that some people might be)

            You guys are all wrong with your negative attitudes. This was obviously an effort to create an abstraction layer so that Taiwan can run on X11 and possibly other backends as well, including wayland.

              I doubt it. Who cares about Nvidia these days?

                  No it's not, it's just that you want it to be.

                    Sigh, 12 years in, we are still talking about the core protocol/graphics features ... Might have to do something with how the hole thing was misdesigned in the first place.
