Thanks for your polite replies in this thread. Myself, and I suspect many others, don't take the time to read up on this stuff, and only encounter Wayland discussions on LWN. And as you say, there are many armchair software developers slinging crap around, and the communication from the Wayland devs thus far leaves something to be desired.
So, it's nice to see people rising above the fray and clearing up misconceptions, rather than getting caught up in flamewars (or completely ignoring the thread).

The worst part is the misunderstanding about what Wayland is and what it's trying to do as can be seen in the slashdot article and unfortunately in the posts here as well. (as noted, it doesn't help that the FAQ is badly worded in some cases).

I think that "a proxy pushing giant bitmap" remoting will be eventually available whatever the toolkit used, of course in some case (text) it's quite inefficient compared to XRender glyph cache's remoting..
