LXer: This week at LWN: LFCS 2012: X and Wayland

Published at LXer:

Keith Packard has been working on the X window system since the early days, but more recently has been doing lots of work to enable its replacement. X has long held the position as the way that graphics is done on Linux (and other Unix) systems, but that is changing. He came to the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit, which was held April 3-5 in San Francisco, to talk about the Wayland protocol and the Weston server, and how they could interoperate with X. Wayland looks to be an interesting change for desktop graphics on Linux. Wayland is an alternative window system, and is part of long-term effort to integrate more modern technology into the Linux desktop. But there are lots of existing X applications out there that need a migration path so that they don't have to be rewritten. That's part of the plan too, Packard said.
