    I found this comment from the blog post quite interesting:

    "However, since I modified the code, I wanted to run the tests, and I found no tests. Now that we have the meson build system and simple-xinit, it was trivial to write some XCB touch-testing of the protocol and verify that my changes at least didn’t regress the protocol I’ve tested. Hopefully these tests can be a model for future automated protocol testing under “make check”. I didn’t port the test to automake, because automake makes testing awful."

    If I read this correctly, meson basically makes it a LOT easier for people to write tests that can be run automatically by e.g. 'make check'.

    Even if meson wasn't any faster than automake, IMHO this feature alone would make the switch away from automake so much worth it.

      Raspbian is still pathetically slow compared to Privacy Enhanced Linux 64.

        Is the top post on their blog some kind of twisted joke? It's bad enough for me to not even bother to read further down the page.

          I think that blog needs more flat earth and anti vaxx posts.

            Do the Openbox patches also help on other hardware? Also, where are they, anyone have a link handy?

              Seems like it was written to offend as many people as possible...
