First Signs Of Wayland Running On Android
Phoronix: First Signs Of Wayland Running On Android
A developer for Collabora has been bringing Wayland and the reference Weston compositor to Google's Android mobile Linux platform...
"Google has been... ensuring that the Chrome/Chromium web-browser will be well-supported natively on Wayland."
By completely removing all Wayland support on 2012-04-07?
What's the objective of running wayland on something that once ran Android?
I.e., what you end up with here is....
hardware --> kernel --> display driver --> wayland --> ??? --> acid trip --> profit
hardware --> kernel --> display driver --> android
Note: It is no longer Android once you replace Android with wayland....
what a psychedelic test. these guy only want to do hypnosis on me LOL
pekka i have a question (since i know you participate here from time to time)
is this work purely a collabora project or they have been contracted by someone else to do that???
OMG why? (stupid character limit)

If you are familiar with the namesake towns in Eastern Massachusetts, you will understand RIGHT AWAY how STUPID it was to name these Free Technologies for Everyman, after these towns. These towns are the Scourge of Massachusetts, they think that their trees and water and air and sunshine belong to THEMSELVES and no others. They are the ONLY towns in Massachusetts that have declined to take part in the Eastern Massachusetts Bikeway, and so GREAT PAINS have had to be taken to re-route the trail to deal with these SNOOTY RICH PEOPLE who don't want those criminals with their bicycles invading their town.
The FOOLS were taken in by studies showing that bicycle trails attract crime but NEGLECTED to notice that ABANDONED RAILROAD tracks attract EVEN MORE crime!
Why not names these technologies after hard working blue collar Massachusetts towns like Townsend or Gardner.
BEEFY MIRACLE will soon and shortly forgotten but these terrible names will be with us for a long time.
I must add that in all my years and thousands of miles of bicycling in many states that the ONLY time I have ever had something thrown at me from a moving car was in Weston.

You know nobody in a position to do anything about this is going to read it here, right?

That's useful if we eventually get a more direct wayland path on android (or plain linux on the same hardware), since it means we'll have slightly better-tested software available. It also makes it possible to run wayland apps on top of android, if you should want that (sort of like why you might want an X server in MacOS X).

He didn't replace Android with Wayland. He replaced Android's UI with Wayland, much like Wayland is being made to work in place of X on Linux. And similarly, I'd guess the plan is to make Android's UI work through Wayland as X works through Wayland. Or maybe modify Android to do all its output directly through Wayland.
