    Not sure if I got the concept of Wayland right, but wouldn't a window manager take care of that? Such as Compiz?

    The way I got it, Wayland + Compiz would make a complete desktop environment, or have I missed something?

    Two things:

    How do the client apps talk to the server? is it in a way that could be over a network to a remote Wayland server if wanted? For things like ssh -X, and FreeNX...

    now i'm also afraid of Wayland anywhere outside of embedded and mobile/portable.
    As long as Wayland remain an application, you can still simply Ctrl+Alt+F4 and kill Wayland ... right?

    I'm assuming Wayland is also a State Tracker?

    What I want to know is what Red Hats official stance is on the project?
