    Phoronix: Wayland Is Almost Ready For Showing Off

    If you haven't tried out the Wayland Display Server as of late, after there being a stream of new announcements, you probably should or at least check out the videos in this posting. The Wayland Display Server is becoming more lively and slowly reaching a point where it may be possible for some to use it on a day-to-day basis...

    Also, when are we going to see a Wayland port of the Phoronix test suite?
    Ol' good answer. Google "Wayland benefits". You're always likely not to be the first asking.

    Though I'm quite sure you have no idea what the Wayland Display server is if you're asking when PTS will be ported to it. It's even not yet released, let alone used anywhere.
    "glxgears benchmark"

    Also known as "tongue in cheek".

    Sure, if you wanted to have a window manager that did cover flow or the old Looking Glass effects, that'd now be possible, yes. There is now no fixed relationship at all whatsoever between windows and their position on screen.

    Kind of belated, but the point of window rotation isn't necessarily to allow users to rotate their windows to 163? and have that as a great UI, but mainly to verify and demonstrate that surface transformation works in Wayland, allowing completely arbitrary UIs and effects which were never (and will never be) possible with X.

    Wayland + Webkit = Win

    Proprietary crap = lusing

    You cannot blame the whole company for what a few greedy employees did, I mean Burke tried to con both Wayland-Yutani and the Colonial Administration. And Smithers is Waylon and not Wayland if I'm not mistaken? Anyways, according to Wikipedia, this project is named after the town Wayland, MA.

    Never heard of Weyland-Yutany?
