    Default XPRA: Persistent Remote Applications On X

    Phoronix: XPRA: Persistent Remote Applications On X

    The XPRA project provides a means of having "persistent remote application" support for X11 applications atop an X.Org Server. This allows for X applications to live on even if the connection to the server has been dropped...

    X is just beyond amazing. Hopefully it lives on forever.

    Yes, definitely.
    I wonder how do wayland and/or mir are supposed to provide something similar to that without hacking things...
    THIS is network transparency.
    We will sadly forget about those things.

    ByeBye ssh -Y

    There is no network transparency in X.

    Call it as you like, but things remain.

    Nx, ssh, xpra...
    Wayland devs keeps saying X "WAS" transparent over network, but i can still ssh to a remote box and have an application seamless render on my local display.
    Is it slow? maybe, but i can still use nX to make things go really fast over poor lines, didn't tried xpra, but it seems to support x264.
    I repeat, how am i supposed to have a gui app to survive a wayland restart?
    How am i supposed to forward a single app to a remote display with wayland?
    Don't answer Xwayland...

    Don't get me wrong, i think wayland is a great thing, but when things changes, you have to say farewell to something to embrace something else.
