    One week after a desktop developer meet-up, the lead developer of the KWin window manager, Martin Gr??lin, has written about the history of using KDE/KWin on the Wayland Display Server...

    Oh, this reminds me... There's a certain game (Solar 2, from the humble bundle android 5 if you must know) that pulls Wayland as a dependency.

    Sounds more like broken packaging rather than actual dependencies on Wayland. At least under openSUSE 12.3 neither GTK nor Mesa installs Wayland by default (although Wayland 1.0.3 is present in the default repos).
    I think their libegl is linked to wayland. They probably has their libegl in the mesa package. It's mean big bunch of computer today has wayland installed.

I'm using Arch with KDE and wayland just one day decided it wanted to be installed.. I will unquestionably remove X from my system when the catalyst drivers support wayland. While some of you are rolling your eyes at that thinking "so, you'll never switch?", the thing is the catalyst devs focus on the needs of linux workstations, not linux gamers. I feel as though workstation programs will work on wayland sooner than games. I'm sure once wayland picks up on the last few fundamental features, it'll be a focus of either AMD or Nvidia.

    just check the "depended on by" list for the wayland package to see what pulled it in

    KDE on Wayland can't come fast enough. Sick of X.

    Honestly, if it were anyone but Canonical, people would be laughing Mir off as a pointless side project. I wish them well, since their failure would certainly hurt the credibility of Linux in the public view. I can't wait until the dust settles on this one- it seems like the ecosystem was so stable, even with KDE 4. Then everything just... exploded, and we're still waiting for it to calm down. I get the feeling it won't any time soon.
