    Considering you're probably not a moron unable to make operating systems, I'm waiting for you to port all the existing X11 apps out there, even those whose source is not public. Given your aggressive stance, I assume that should not take you much time.

    ...

    (BTW, last time I checked, most users are interested in a system that works, not in Wayland. Not that wayland does not work or that it's not ready for production, but I can guess that users are not interested in the technology that powers their systems - they just want it to work).

    Xwayland should be rootless, so, it doesn't have access to all of your other windows. Of course, you can do the same with regular X, but I'm not aware of such an X being widely deployed.

    Things I would like to see in Weston:
    • Better animations.
      • Shrink instead of fade-out when close windows.
      • Expand instead of fade-in when open a menu.
    • Snap window to screen edges when moving windows for easier window positioning.
    • Window placement using hotkeys, e.g. WinKey+4 for left side, WinKey+6 for right side.
    • Able to position the dock on the bottom, and maybe left and right as opposed to only the top.
    Realistically, Weston is supposed to be just an example Wayland compositor, not made for everyday use. Most of what you're talking about are not intrinsic to Wayland and you would find in compositors like mutter.

    On Weston the mouse position is offset on the window by a displacement equal to that of the window itself from the topleft corner (its preferred position). Of course this doesn't happen with "real" compositors (Sway, Mutter), but this article is about Weston.
