Phoronix: Running Wayland On Ubuntu 11.10
It's approaching the one-year anniversary of when Mark Shuttleworth announced Ubuntu is going to deploy Wayland with Unity, eventually. As those know that pay attention to the continual flow of information from Phoronix regarding the next-generation Wayland Display Server and Linux graphics drivers in general, it's being developed at a brisk pace and with several key open-source projects now betting big on its adoption, but how's it playing in the soon-to-be-released Ubuntu 11.10?
- Mark Shuttleworth, http://www.markshuttleworth.com/archives/517I didnít found Ubuntu as a vehicle for getting lots of code written, that didnít seem to me to be what the world needed. It needed a vehicle for getting it out there, that cares about delivering the code we already have in a state of high quality and reliability. Most of the pieces of the desktop were in place Ė and code was flowing in Ė it just wasnít being delivered in a way that would take it beyond the server, or to the general public.
I just hope that when Wayland hits, (and they start cramming it down our throats), it will be in a better state of readiness than PulseAudio was.
