    Really, are the X11 gnomes coming to your guys' houses and blowing you in the middle of the night if you promise to never use another low-level windowing API?

    Yeah, Wayland has a ways to go. The people in charge of it know that. The people in charge of X.org know it too. Largely because those two groups are comprised of many of the same people.
    ...from the guy who gets blown by Ballmer every night.

    I just hope that down the road they won't drop xWayland....that will a big no no.
    Why not?
    Xwayland may be needed initially (because some apps make X calls).
    But down the road, almost all applications will run fine without X, I guess.

    If they run faster, that's good.

    Yeah. They're also baking us cookies and pies.

    Why are GTK and Qt not themed?
    Looks awful when not!

    I wish GTK and Qt improved their default themes.

    Jesus, I still find people emotionally attached to DirectX, even after Valve showed GL is faster. Those guys still keep trolling about DX being alledgedly snappier and stuff, hopeless people.
