Has anybody here tried Wayland, and how does it stack against X in your opinions.


I am just interested how many people use it and what their impressions are.

Releases
1.3.91 Release

The 1.3.91 version of Wayland and Weston was released on December 16th, 2013. This release is an alpha release.
As you can see it still in alpha and probably not many people has tried it yet, besides the people involved in the development. But here you can see some screenshots and have some idea about what have been done so far.

Regards

I realize that, but it is available so it didn't hurt to ask, personally I'd rather wait for a more mature release, but I still might try it if it seems good
