      Brainless parrotting without any original input never did anyone any good.

        Can this be used for multiseat on one single video card?

          Yes, and that was horribly unsafe.

          There is also xpra you can use for remoting apps. But the nice thing about this implementation is not having to use a virtual X server.

            And a running session, so probably a display.

              In the MR it says a render node is required. Does this mean we need some kind of 3D acceleration on the server?

                  I haven't read the details but I'm not sure if remote display on servers is the primary use case for this (for one thing this is virtual monitor management, not virtual/remote input). It could be more targeted at applications like screen recording, streaming, display virtualisation for VMs/containers etc.

                    144Hz Nobody is saying that Gnome is a dictatorship, because it's not.

                    Gnome is an oligarchy.
                    As most of the open source software, for that matter.
