    Considering how vibrant and independent the Linux ecosystem is, would they even be able to extinguish? I mean, many of the players like Red Hat/IBM, are in and of themselves powerful in their own right.

      Nope, GUI support under WSL2 will be leveraging Wayland from day one. There will be no X11, its network transparency is completely useless for modern hardware accelerated GUIs.

      You know, XDC is a misnomer — it’s not just about X.

        Just to be clear, that sounds like you are saying that unless you use X11... there is no GUI support in WSL2 (via Wayland) yet

        Are you able to use WSL2 and Wayland today like you can with VcXsrv or Xming the day WSL2 came out?

          looks like wayland will fall and the peolpe will fork X and back to X

            Looks like you're totally wrong.

              Wayland will get there in time, there is no point in forking X, wayland will eventually absorb X.

              X is not going anywhere but wayland eventually will take the command seat.

              Perhaps we would get there faster if it wasn't for Nvidia's constant sabotage.

                      It's obviously less that they've stopped and more that they haven't yet gotten to the point where they have a large enough market share in the Linux space to actually pull it off.

                      After all the things they pulled in the 90s I honestly don't think I'm going to genuinely trust them not to pull tricks like this until they actually do get broken up like they were supposed to back then when the U.S government really took them to task for it. I'm also obviously not alone in my total distrust of them in relation to any and all open standards.
