    Can you point me towards some benchmarks? Thanks.

    That's the entire point of Wayland - super fast rendering of video. Interestingly enough, I've not had issues with audio sync when using mplayer on Ubuntu (on X).

    Wayland is taking Linux in a new era where it will become king of the desktop.

    I always had problems with audio being out of sync with XBMC, but there is no problem when I enable the AV sync in the XBMC options.

    There are no Wayland benchmarks because the display server isn't even in beta development stage yet. No desktops currently are able to run on it, but most major ones are being ported to Wayland. KDE, GNOME, Enlightenment. For now, the only "benchmark" running on Wayland is glxgears.

    And..? Is it faster? What are the results of this glxgears benchmark?

    Also, when are we going to see a Wayland port of the Phoronix test suite?

    So how do we know that it's "far more efficient"? So far, it doesn't really do much.

    When it's ready. Who knows? Maybe in 2014?!?
