    What is the "frame synchronization protocol"?

    Have they included the GLX_EXT_BUFFER_AGE extension?

    I hope this can be seen as a milestone to start develop wayland compatible apps. It has been a long time coming, but it seems someone should make the push so we can finally ditch X.

    Only for applications that won't be ported to Wayland anytime soon. KDE and Gnome should work without X quite soon. X is as good as dead.

    It's already dead, and nobody is using it.

    You must be using open source gpu drivers, because those of us who aren't won't be able to ditch X until AMD and nvidia get their acts together.

    I think Nvidia is implementing EGL or OpenGL ES in their proprietary driver, then I think maybe Wayland will work with the proprietary drivers too.

    If memory serves, Wayland needs an EGL extension, so Wayland will work with NVidia's EGL implementation only if NVidia adds this extension.
