LWN.net Weekly Edition for June 13, 2013
A report from pgCon 2013
AFAIR even the AMIGA did better on that than Windos (although i'd not bet more than 50¢ on it, too many years have gone by since then)

With X11 you currently have 3 processes:
1. X server
2. X client
3. compositor/window manager
In Wayland you do away with the X server process. All it's duties unrelated to network communications (screen management, input handling) are incorporated into the compositor/window manager.
So, it will in fact look a lot more like Amiga's Intuition than current X does.
