    Default Running The Latest GNOME Wayland Shell On Fedora 20

    Phoronix: Running The Latest GNOME Wayland Shell On Fedora 20

    With the Fedora 20 beta coming up I decided to see where the latest Fedora 20 packages are now at for their support of Wayland and the GNOME Shell Wayland session. In particular, looking at whether the session is still buggy and how the XWayland performance is for Linux gaming.

    Cool fullscreen

    Are these benchmarks running in fullscreen mode?

    Are there options for gnome-shell under xorg and wayland not to composite fullscreen windows....and are on or off?

    XWayland is rootless, meaning EVERY window is fullscreen in the eyes of X11. But no, sadly the one thing that we really need in XWayland (composite bypass for "fullscreen" (AKA all) windows) has not arrived. Because it runs rootless, it would improve performance for every application you opened with XWayaland, not just the ones that look fullscreen to you :/

    Performance difference could be much worse I suppose, I'd probably take that if it meant I could run a tear-free desktop

    How many fps you can do is not all the story on performance. Smooth experience on desktop should be the focus right now, who cares how many fps you can do in games? sorry for my reaction, but I've tried wayland and the desktop experience is shocking. X sucks in every way.

    Meh. The benchmarks would be more interesting if the games were running natively on Wayland (SDL has been ported to Wayland) and then compared against their X11 versions…

    Eeeeeeeeeh... SDL2--- TWO -- has been ported to Wayland. Not SDL1. So we need some apps that are written against SDL2 in order to actually test them accurately.

    It should be compared with Mir. That would be interesting
