    Phoronix: It's Time To Admit It: The X.Org Server Is Abandonware

    The last major release of the X.Org Server was in May 2018 but don't expect the long-awaited X.Org Server 1.21 to actually be released anytime soon...

      Because it's pretty much complete and stable.

      The protocol has flaws, but Wayland still is a work in progress, lacking some important features...

      (and a secret plot to GNOMize or destroy KDE)

        As in the Debian definition of "stable" (=no longer changing which is precisely what the article is about). The gaping security flaws aren't getting fixed within Xorg Server. The official fix is Wayland.

          I see you too have been introduced to the "Flaws? It's a feature" people

            Which is just awesome when you're a user sitting on the sidelines. We get to pick from one side that has security flaws and another side that doesn't work quite right.

              I have to say I love how well GNOME on Wayland works. Perfect frames, no weird stuttering, no input blocking, real multitouch gestures. One thing that is quite lacking is a standard screen sharing/recording/casting protocol that all desktops supported. Other than that, it's already perfect (assuming you don't run Nvidia)

                Besides the fact that Wayland is still not feature complete, is there even decent amount of third party software that natively supports Wayland besides web browsers?

                  Old code bases never die, they just fade away.

                    For my fiancee i need a way to dim brightness and blue per commandline (she remote controls that through her phone)

                    Is that even theoretically possible with wayland?
