I just want to see what you guys think about the statements the creator makes about new software is limiting the ability to customize. I personally understand the things he says about Wayland though. I’m still trying to figure out why we need a totally new xserver. Why not improve or rewrite the current x.org server?
From what I have experienced and read over time - there is a lot of security concern over X11 codebase and how it works.
Wayland (Weston protocol - I think ) is intended to be secure by design - is such thing will ever exist when humans are involved.
With a major backer like Redhat - I believe they feel entitiled to demand some stability of the preferred desktop - I know I would it I were up there in the skies and had thousands of enterprises on my subscription list - enterprises which demands stability over everything else - including keeping the ability kept to a minimum - simply to keep systems stable from the above mentioned theming issues…
I don’t think thast’s why I don’t use it I could probably live with the limitations - I’ve used (happily) worse over the years in terms of features. Of course, for me those years go back quite a while! What stops me is the implementation of the features that are there - the breaking of the top-left to bottom-right work flow.
I COULD use it, but I would HAVE to be paid to… well paid. Maybe the corporate mindset makes some sense!
