> Wayland is also poised to support GPU hotswapping
For Christ's sake, you Jacobins complain that "nobody" uses network transparency, then you go on to tout *GPU HOTSWAPPING*? That's brazen and maddening. It smacks of other motivations.
I can't believe you people aim to utterly castrate the Linux desktop for... this. You still can't explain exactly what it is about X11 that you find so distasteful. You can't demonstrate what aspects of its architecture cause local performance issues or come up with benchmarks to support your dubious assertions about network transparency harming performance. X11 could support every feature you mention; every previous challenge has been successfully met with an X11 extension. Your particular case is no different.
It seems as if you're entirely motivated by a simplistic rejection of the old in favor of the new ---- no matter what the relative merits of the two. Wayland has nothing to do with improving the state of the desktop and everything to do with a bunch of cretins burning down the great old edifice of Unix out ignorance and fear. It's as if you think X11 is some evil demon that need to be driven out. It'd be ridiculous if distributors weren't listening, but they seem to be full of adherents to this asinine, reactionary religion.
