A Short Video Tour Of The Wayland Display Server
Phoronix: A Short Video Tour Of The Wayland Display Server
There's been a lot of talk lately about the Wayland Display Server since it was announced Ubuntu is going to deploy their Unity Desktop atop Wayland. The new Wayland mailing list has become lively with end-users and developers and there's more people now trying out this experimental lightweight display server that leverages OpenGL ES, kernel mode-setting, and the Graphics Execution Manager, among other recent Linux graphics technologies. Most people though still haven't seen or used Wayland, but here's a short video showing it off...
The rendering looks beautiful
two more vids found on spacetube
also a canonical employee (he has a canonical email) seems to have submitted some patches in the mailing list related to the clients
That was Bryce Harrington, he's Canonical's X guy. I wouldn't be surprised if he is working on making it work for Ubuntu already

Hummm... I found it yummy! Very nice demos about Wayland! :P
Now, it would be nice ATI and nVidia proprietary drivers could support Wayland (even if it wasn't in a short term...).
My 2c, cheers!
No it wouldn't. That would be entirely counter productive. Let the blobs die, the open source drivers are already superior in the vast majority of ways, the banishment of the blob drivers will do nothing except accelerate the adoption and advancement of the superior open source drivers.
