LXer: Life Beyond X - Ubuntu Drifting Away from X11 Towards Wayland Display Server

Published at LXer:

X Windows System(commonly known as X or X11) has been part of Linux for so long that everyone seems to have forgotten if there even existed any alternatives at all. Well, Canonical founder Mark Shuttlework recently reminded us all that there are indeed alternatives to X and they are planning to move Ubuntu from X towards one such alternative called Wayland with the future firmly in mind. Ubuntu's most significant change is less significant compared to this.
