>Wow. I couldn't get it that slow even on a slowest Intel Atom netbook I could find. Was that the worst test of many?
No, but many repeated runs do bring it down to 0.109s in the best case.
I think this is an example where the first case is the relevant one though, because that's what you'd experience in real use.
To be fair, I don't know if the video device and driver in use have any bearing on this, but just in case it does it's worth noting that I'm running on a laptop with Intel integrated graphics, where I have historically found the quality of both hardware and driver ranges from 'awful' to 'unspeakably awful'.
> If you wanted to say that applications should start faster under Wayland than under Xorg, you should test something like:
I just wanted to disagree with your claim that slow startup is not an issue, because it very frequently is when you are running remote X clients. It happens that the example you picked was one that demonstrated the difference particularly clearly.
