A few years back we covered the Nemoshell for Wayland and back in 2014 how NEMO-UX was working on a futuristic, multi-user Wayland experience. It's been a while since hearing anything about Nemo, but we've received some information today from the newly-formed company that's trying to push this Wayland experience further.

Junghan Kim, the co-founder of NEMO-UX, wrote into Phoronix this morning on the latest details of the project. While NEMO-UX was born as a computer science project four years ago by doctoral candidates, they've now formed NEMO-UX into a startup company where they are hoping to make this new window manager applicable for large intereactive displays, table-top computers, and media walls.

Junghan Kim shared that soon they will be open-sourcing a new custom shell which they've called "Minishell" and will continue to rely upon Wayland. Below are some recent NEMO-UX demos.

More details as they become available.
