Moving On From An X.Org World To Wayland
Phoronix: Moving On From An X.Org World To Wayland
Taking place in Canberra, Australia last week was Linux.Conf.Au. The videos from LCA 2013 have now been uploaded and one of the talks likely to excite Phoronix readers is Daniel Stone's perspective of X.Org and Wayland...
I would love to see this video, but it does not work, as the mirror refuses the connection. Am I the only one to experience this?
The video is not working for me as well.

Ok, I digged in a bit and found out that you can download the video using public-ftp (bypassing the faulty http-handling) with this URL, shouldn't even wget work for you:
Finished watching it now, it was very interesting. I'm not sure if that's because it said exactly what I was looking for it to say though i.e. X sucks and we should replace it with Wayland asap. It's a very good video for the X apologist posts though, of which there's plenty of examples on in the Phoronix forums. Every time someone says Wayland isn't a replacement for X, and X isn't going anywhere anytime soon blah blah, this video is the perfect reply.
God, I can't wait to try a Gentoo install with Wayland and excluding X in my use flags.
What an awesome presentation! It pointed out everything that X suffers from. He sooo nailed it.
Thank you for the hard work!
