    Default Remote Wayland Server Project: Does It Work Yet?

    Phoronix: Remote Wayland Server Project: Does It Work Yet?

    With the 2011 Google Summer of Code, we now know how the Gallium3D OpenCL state tracker and morphological anti-aliasing (MLAA) turned out, but how did the remote display capabilities for the Wayland Display Server evolve over the summer? It's something that hasn't yet been reported about on Phoronix...

    Hmm, this could make nVidia Optimus work in Linux, right?

    Sure it would ..... but it would also be amazingly inefficient because it would involve using multiple instances of Wayland and the Compositor copying everything from one to the other.

    I'm no expert but I think this is something Wayland (or X) should handle directly.

    Sweet, more X11 functionality being poorly reimplemented for no good reason.
