    Phoronix: Samsung/Enlightenment Experiment With Wayland In A Widget

    Enlightenment / Samsung OSG developers have been experimenting with running Wayland within a tool-kit widget. E.g. running the Weston terminal within an EGL tool-kit widget that in turn could be running on X.Org...

        Wait a second, isn't Wayland supposed to sandbox the applications already (for the part that concernes its job, anyway), and was Xorg that allows anything with a GUI to keylog the hell out of my system?

        Why a widget or a compositor-in-a-compositor is better in this case?

          I can see something like this being interesting for organizing a very complex graphics application, which ends up basically having its own windowing system whether you like it or not.

            Methinks this misses whole point of either Wayland or Enlightenment.

              We actually wrote something like this in KDE as well. In our case the reason was that we were prototyping a Qt Quick version of the System Settings application and were experimenting with ways to embed the legacy QWidget-based modules into that. So we played around with running them out of process and compositing them into the Qt Quick shell via Wayland. It turned out to be more trouble than it's worth, but you got "neat!" moments like running Plasma/Wayland inside a plasmoid on the desktop out of it.
