    Of course, it's a research project, not a polished product from the Apple marketing brigade. The engineers there are more interested in the foundations than the bling.

    Wayland looks pretty ugly too at the moment, but once all the bling is ported on it, it will look very different.

    Yes but what I was pointing out is that one of the reason for Wayland's creation is that X isn't well suited to "the bling" (smooth animations, resizing, etc), and rio doesn't have any bling so the question is: does-rio support well the bling?
    If no, then comparing Wayland and rio makes no sense.

    Uh? Wayland's support is incomplete but once done, it'll look mostly the same as current application, the only added "bling" that Wayland will provide are smoother animation and resizing and the possibility to interact with "transformed"(rotated, etc) windows.

    You can create GUIs with raw Win32 API calls, but nobody does because it is very low-level and very cumbersome to do.
    So people used to use stuff like MFC (Microsoft Foundation Classes), and other libraries. But now they use Windows Forms in the .NET framework.
