    No, C does not force you to use bad design; it gives you the freedom to use bad design.

    biggest mistake is to think that a lot of knowledge is required. It is not. There is enough time prior to the Gsoc project time to prepare.

    Also Italy, Greece and probably Spain fit that description too.

    Not that in other "not-most-corrupted contries from Europe" the situation is much different on the education side.

    if i were using (developing for)wayland, i would write one

    I remember that all my education from high school to university I was forced to use Microsoft products like Office and then Visual studio and SQL server.
    They even wanted to bribe me, by offering me a free Windows 7 licence.
    That must mean you're portuguese.

    Yes, this is the case if you want to make wayland server [compositor] and client yourself. But otherwise you have to use lib-wayland (c-library) to build the wayland client if you want to be sure that it runs on default wayland server/compositor (i.e. weston).
    And I was thinking about this option too, that angry made me the c-library lib-wayland. But since I don't know that much about wayland I was postponing this, especially after seeing that KDE and Gnome are struggling since years to support wayland.
    So at the moment I use libwayland for my framework, but in such a way that wayland can be replaced any time by something else.
