LFCS 2012: X and Wayland
Posted Apr 20, 2012 11:44 UTC (Fri) by dgm (subscriber, #49227)
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.
