No one ever gets hacked.
>>92186128>muh securityKill yourself waytard
>>92186128>mug X11 securityI wonder who could be behind this post
I see Red Hat shills are working overtime
>>92186128post this week's discovery
>>92186128there is no alternative
it will soon be over, when color management finally drops in a year or so even the most diehard fans will find it hard to justify continuing to stay on x
>>92187474color management is relevant to 1% of users
>>92186128Wayland doesn't work so I'm sticking with X. If support is dropped for X then I switch to Windows because at least drinking Microsoft's cool aid leaves me with a usable desktop, drinking Redhat's doesn't.
>>92186128just like your mom
>>92187474I will never use wayland because there is no such thing as a wayland desktop, there is a gnome/kde/wlroots/weston/gamescope/etc desktop and as a developer you have to target each one. If you write software that actually matters then you need to write at least 4 different versions of your code to make sure that it works on "wayland". This is not the case with x11. With x11 you write once and it works everywhere, for decades.
>>92187474you are forgetting freesync as well. wayland doesn't have any proper freesync support.
sway works out of the box bitch, but the fractional scaling is shit, have a good monitor for that you fucking bitch
>>92186128If Wayland would work just as well as X does, I would have switched already. But it doesn't. And I can't transfer my setup over to Wayland either. Fix your shitty "protocol" or fuck off.
don't run it as rootproblem solved
>>92187997you will shift sooner or later bitch
>>92187474Wake me when Wayland adds support for running without a compositor.
>>92187997>I can't transfer my setuphave you tried not being tinker tranny
>>92188054not your alarm bitchyour ass needs a good spanking
>>92188070>have something that works>"nooo! you need to move to the current thing!">but my stuff won't work there.>"you HAVE to!">why? no.>t-tinker tranny.... *sniff*"
>>92188101sorry for your retardation, but for normal people, like me, switching to Wayland means choosing different option at login and that's it everything worksI added some custom options to .desktop files for some programs to force native Wayland but things work on Xwayland as well
>>92187813non-sRGBy content and displays are becoming more and more common and you can't properly take advantage of that on X
>>92186189howly shit, source me that gnu-girl
>>92187474>soon be over, when color management finally dropsoh shit, IT CAN'T EVEN DO THAT?LMAO
>>92188369go finger your mom's clit
>>92186189Who makes these. (S)he needs help
d-d-dont use winblows guys use linux no viroosesn-n-w use gayland guys because my secooorityfucking schizo troons need the bullet.
>>92188281Consumer HDR sucks. We don't care.
>>92187997This, and it forces compositing and desktop effects in my Fedora KDE spin. I'm perfectly fine with x11.
>>92186165They're usually exploits that require root access. Retards just like to seethe.
>>92187474It's hilarious how there's still no color management protocol for wayland.

>>92188884>remote code execution for ssh X forwarding sessions.Would you kindly share with the class what you need to get ssh X forwarding?
>>92189110I've seen countless /g/tards say they need muh X11 network transparency.
>>92189187Didn't answer my request. Besides you can use trusted forwarding (-Y) if security is a requirement.
>>92189375>trusted forwarding (-Y)Doesn't fix any of the security holes.

>>92189838>Can't give a non-meme reason or explain why it's a basic feature>"Look I just need it ok"As expected
>>92189853>>"Look I just need it ok"Entirely valid reason. Devs do not decide use cases, users do.
>>92189864That's false. How would your feature be developed if no devs decided to write it?
>>92187963>you are forgetting freesync as well. wayland doesn't have any proper freesync supportWayland is a protocol for communications between clients (application) and display server. How exactly this "support" on protocol level should look, could you please elaborate?
>>92189900why would the software be written in the first place if it's not going to have users?
People care about exploiting X. Unlike Wayland.
>>92189797>>92189797>rootless XIt can still crash the server with rootless X>plus X11 forwarding works best on local networks anywayI'm sure you'd love it if the X11 developers used that excuse to avoid fixing security holes
Has anyone from personal experience been exploited or hacked by X11?
>>92189959Do you believe we should wait until someone is hacked before fixing security holes?
>>92186128Wayland is still not working
>>92189982I believe you should switch to Xenocara and get on with your lives(nta)
>>92189853seems like any answer someone would give is a "meme answer" so you're not interested in a good faith conversation on the topic anyway
>>92189959My sister was. She was using family computer with Linux installed when malicious actor (me) used userspace keylogger to steal her social networks credentials. You can't imagine how many intimate media data he obtained.
>>92190016Not a solution, Xenocara was vulnerable to all the security holes previously mentioned

>>92190173If you have to start implicitly accusing or insulting people like this, you have already lost the argument.
>>92190146>This shit againTo deploy that keylogger you need to already have local privilege escalation. Guess what is a local privilege escalation? Those X11 security holes. They can be activated through XWayland. That's proving the point how X11 just makes everything it touches less secure

>>92190355welcome to the wonderful world of public-facing services! if you can't handle it then keep it local
>>92190364It does, you can't get root in wayland because your apps are sandboxed
>>92190415you people are actually stupid as fuck holy shit.
>>92190173You got lucky then, because I have been a victim of Windows security flaws. I can't say the same for X. Doesn't mean it can't happen. But it does call into question the value of throwing out the entire system.
>>92190393Or even easier, remove it from the system
>>92190452Can you think of a reason why that would be despite X historically having lots of security holes?
>>92190456if you want to do that then provide a real alternative and not gayland.i'd gladly consider a more secure display server with network capability, especially one that isn't hard dependent on slow as ssh. but these projects are niche and in their infancy. what we got instead was a fundamentally misguided project run by autists
>>92190432Nice arguments. Explain how a sandboxed app is going to get root without a local privilege escalation exploit
>>92190496Every alternative is going to be similar to Wayland. The only reason you hate Wayland is because it's a huge project to replace X and it's taking a long time
>>92190505Explain the same for X. Do you think app sandboxing doesn’t work in X or something?
>>92190531>Every alternative is going to be similar to Wayland.wrong, arcan is a real display server for example>The only reason you hate Wayland is because it's a huge project to replace X and it's taking a long timewrong, but honestly even if you were right, it'd be a valid reason to hate it, it's a fucking embarrassment to FOSS
>>92190545>app sandboxing doesn’t work in X For the 10000000th time, that's correct. It doesn't. No, running all your apps in Xephyr isn't a solution, it's a hack that fucks up a lot of other things worse than Wayland does
>>92190531Any project that generates this much ire from their users deserves a critical eye.

I find it funny how OP is trying to single-handedly generate enough shill traffic to flood other posts shitting on him with no end in sight
>>92191054So why should I trust their opinion? It’s clear they got tired of maintaining a piece of software and want more clout by claiming they are creating the replacement for that software. Meanwhile, Wayland still feels like a straight jacket to such a degree that using winblows or aplel feels more free. The writing is on the wall with the real drive behind Wayland, and I don’t like it. So no thanks, I’ll stick with X. Try again in 10 years when wayland has its shit together.

WSL2 has working Wayland support, it works better than anything you could come up with
>>92191122Both posts are correct. Your belief in what FOSS means isn’t real FOSS. You are a groupie.

>>92186128>will never be a real display server
My operating system has security baked in!
The simple fact of the matter is that the problems Wayland aims to solve (Screen tearing, giving developers a shiny new toy) aren't problems users care about having solved. That's why it's been coming real soon now for well over a decade.
>when you run out of arguments
>>92192448Users do care about it. You don't speak for all users
>>92192700"users" don't even notice 4:3 being stretched into a widescreen aspect ratio. They have no idea what screen tearing is and can't see it if you point it out to them. And even the people who do know what it is have no reason to care about developers getting new toys. (that generally inconveniences, rather than benefits, users, after all)
>>92192415> My operating system has security baked in!Yes so secure that you can't even launch applications if the telemetry server of apple is down.https://sneak.berlin/20201112/your-computer-isnt-yours/
>>92192845Then they won't care which one they use. They're fine with the default
>>92192291Wayland is explicitly designed to not be display server
>>92190381This is, of course, a lie. Xorg has supported ICC profiles since, I believe, the early 2000s.
>>92193092>Xorg has supported ICC profilesThis is of course, a lie. The "support" for profiles is another bad hack that doesn't work correctly
>>92189939so the difference between X and Wayland is that X needs a security vulnerability to crash. got it.
>>92193150No X has plenty of crashes without that, just ask anyone with an nvidia card
>>92193111Try not lying for once in your life.https://www.burtonini.com/computing/x-icc-profiles-spec-latest.html
>>92193111you just call any code outside the wayland repos "bad hack" and suddenly we're supposed to ignore the hundreds of thousands of working deployments over decades?lol. lmao.
>>92193232He doesn't even use linux. He's some mentally ill macfag as admitted in another thread.
>>92193185ah, nvidia cards. wayland's kryptonite.
>>921930921. that's not enough and2. the implementation suckshttps://gitlab.freedesktop.org/pq/color-and-hdr/-/blob/main/doc/winsys_color_pipeline.rst#x11-color-pipeline
>>92193219Those profiles are just a hint. They don't actually do anything without explicit support from the clients who can do anything and fuck up the profile if they feel like it>>92193232Not any code, just X11. Wayland has plenty of hacks too but their HDR implementation actually isn't a hack>>92193248>All anons are the sameTake your meds.
>>92193278It's just missing some way communicate metadata. By the way, NVIDIA proposed this sometime in 2017 I think, but no one cared because gayland. I guarantee that whatever the waylandfags come up with, whenever it happens; just two more weeks, will be crippled and gimped in some way.
>>92193349No, adding metadata will not solve any of the issues. Try actually reading the document
>>92190381>X.org is relevant to 0% of usersIt's relevant to us.>Works for me senapi, Qt is write one and works everywhereThis includes X
>>92193391>The X11 color pipeline is shown in Figure 1. In this model, thedisplay server is completely agnostic of any color management happening.The display server's job is to stay out of the way while X11 clients doall their color reproduction on their own, perhaps with the help of a CMM.This is the way it should be. I'm not interested in the wayland model.
>>92190792>There's no way to set it up properly without breaking some X clientsApparently that's not an issue since Wayland breaks plenty of X clients.
>>92193448No that's not the way it should be. Try actually reading the rest of the document where it explains why that model has problems
>>92190531>Let me explain to you what you're thinkingGo back to OSX.
>>92193470And now you're almost getting to reality: X clients were going to break anyway so the developers decided to go the full distance for Wayland
>>92193476The only actual problems it has are some redundant fields. His personal opinion that it's bad for clients to have control is nothing more than just that: an opinion.
>>92193548No you're wrong. It causes very real issues with X clients fucking up the display
>>92193563There are "no real issues"; this is just theoretical nonsense.
>>92193598No, you're objectively wrong. Some X clients change the Randr LUTs, some change the profile hint, some use their own setting, some don't do anything, some try to guess what the LUT is based on other things, and probably more I'm forgetting. All of these methods are incompatible and stomp on each other's settings right now and if you try to change any of these in the X server then you break the rest of the clients. Giving clients more control solves nothing at all and it just fucks everything up worse
>>92193650Just configure your shit properly and this won't happen. Again, not a real issue in the real world.
>>92186189good lord, that is unreadable
>>92193665You can't fix it with more configuration because the existing configurations are incompatible
>>92193710>install multiple applications that manage color>surprised that you might get weird resultsagain, this is just a (you) problem. Properly configure your system and this won't happen.
>>92193748No, you're objectively wrong. The design of X11 is explicitly to allow random clients to manage color and many X clients do without warning you
>>92193774>The design of X11 is explicitly to allow random clients to manage color and many X clients do without warning youAnd as I've already said, there's nothing wrong with this. I'm sorry you struggle with the idea that programs can do things.
>>92193860(You) just said there was something wrong with it because it was causing, in your words, "weird results". Don't give me this stupid cope shit
>>92192848i sense your jealousy :-)
>>92193898This is sophistry. The fault in that example does not lie with the model but purely with the user that doesn't understand what he's doing.
>>92194005No, objectively wrong again. The user can understand what he's doing perfectly and still end up with a fucked display because a random client decided to do the wrong thing
>>92190990I have met 0 people using wayland, 1 person using arcan, about 100 using X. Proves absolutely shit about merit. I've also fucked around with quartz, x11, wayland, mir and arcan myself.It is all anecdotal and proves shit. Mir was a better Wayland than Wayland (protobuf vs KRHs own-format not even capable of handling its dogshit line encoding and cerebral palsy level queueing, 64 bit numbers aren't a thing so DRM modifiers are packed into two 32-bit one like it is criminally retarded).Technically Arcan is really really interesting and showing something that moves beyond NeWS. Enough for me.
>>92189375-Y disables the extra security of -X.
>>92194036Your personal opinion is not a fact. This is a concept you seem to have trouble grasping.>a random client decided to do the wrong thingThe solution is either "don't use that client" or "fix the bug". Neither are real issues. Stop pretending grandma is going to die because you misconfigured your gamma.
>>92193774nothing stopping Xorg from prioritizing who gets to do what. XAce did all the work, that Xorg didn't follow through can be fixed within the hour. It is not a protocol problem.

Wayland isn't at the stage of having any kind of responsible disclosure and still just shitting the bed. There are infinitely many memory corruption vulns in every Wayland compositor except >maybe< Smitthay and they get zero attention. Grep for UAF/use-after-free in git log for Mutter/Kwin/Wlroots. For 10+ years the use of LibFFT alone broke canaries making stack overflow vulns 'tutorial gets()' easy to exploit.For 5-10ish years any client could ftruncate() the keymap in wl_seat to break input system-wide because they didn't know how descriptor passing worked. Wayland documentation on 'security' is just a 'TODO: something about authentication'.
>>92194124>Don't use that clientNot an option if the user needs that app. At that point you might as well stop using any X clients and use Wayland>Fix the bugNot an option for many old clients that expect bug-for-bug compatibility>Neither are real issues. Objectively wrong and not my opinion>>92194135No, objectively wrong. You can't change Xorg without breaking some of those clients. Adding more blocks to Xace will break clients. It is a protocol problem, making those changes subtly changes the behavior of the protocol
>>92194236And it's still more secure than X11
>>92194276>Not an option for many old clients that expect bug-for-bug compatibilityThis literally makes no sense at all lmao. Why did I waste my time on you again? go back to macOS
>>92194367>Old client tries to color manage>It doesn't work anymore because you "fixed" the bug>That literally makes no sense!Anon...
>>92194395I guess your brain is just broken. The premise is that some client is wrong and doing the bad thing. Fixing the bug doesn't make it "not work anymore". The exact opposite happens. Time to go back.
>>92194425Go back and read the thread again. You can't fix it without breaking other clients or without breaking the client itself. This is fundamental to the way X11 works, it's exactly what you asked for when you asked for clients to have "more control"
>>92194425>>92194456Also some clients can't easily be fixed such as closed source apps or ones where source code was lost. "Just fix the bug" isn't a valid solution for X clients. The server just has maintain ABI compatibility forever or random clients start breaking. In other words don't break userspace
>>92194456>You can't fix it without breaking other clients or without breaking the client itself.Except you can and you're just making up shit as usual in these contrived, imaginary examples.>>92194542This bit has literally nothing to do with X11. Do you think wayland doesn't also maintain ABI compatibility? You don't actually know anything about software and are just typing random words together.
>sudo apt install -y xorg ; startxbased
>>92194304it isn't. X11 has (bad) authentication in the protocol. Wayland has >no< authentication. There isn't 'security' in the protocol and it doesn't define a privilege boundary to have the IDEA of security -- it is all >implementation defined<.
>>92194635>Except you canNo you can't. If it were possible it would have been done by now. You are not smarter than every X11 dev>Do you think wayland doesn't also maintain ABI compatibilityYes in this case. Wayland doesn't have to maintain ABI compatibility with 1000 different broken and incompatible color management tools. They avoided that problem by waiting until they could develop a proper color management API
>>92194652That's by design after observing X11 security was so bad it still needed external programs like ssh to have real security. There's no point to putting it in the protocol
>>92194723There's no actual problem in the first place. It's all theoretical. You won't name a single concrete example.>They avoided that problem by waiting until they could develop a proper color management APIWhen that protocol comes out (whenever it will be), wayland will have to maintain ABI compatibility with that if they move it out of staging. It's literally no different. Nothing is stopping any xorg extension from being bumped to a new major version. It hasn't been done since, again, none of these are real issues.
>>92194789No. Just No as in "you don't make any fucking sense". SSH is used >the same< for Waypipe (which is comical because Wayland itself doesn't work over TCP/UDP at all). Neither Wayland NOR X11 provide confidentiality, integrity or authenticity for its transport. That's all that is.
no one even uses wayland after 25 years and wayland homosexuals are getting so fucking mad it's incredible. LOL
>>92195006That's exactly what I said. Waypipe was created using ssh because they already knew that was the way to go, from experience with X11
>>92194979>name a single concrete example.See >>92193650>wayland will have to maintain ABI compatibility with that if they move it out of stagingWhich they will avoid because the API won't let clients fuck with the profiles of other clients>It's literally no differentIt's completely different, read the design doc again >>92193278>Nothing is stopping any xorg extension from being bumped to a new major versionPlenty is stopping that. Old clients will not be updated to use that extension so will remain broken and will continue fucking up other clients. New clients that use the extension will still have to include code to try and manage old clients that don't use it, and will remain broken if an old client does the wrong thing. You can't just paper over all problems with X11 by adding more extensions, it doesn't work like that
>>92186128>Muh security holes>Almost no examples of alleged X11 exploits being utilized to compromise Unix/Linux systems at scale in a real world contextIf you're that worried just use VNC and disable X forwarding. Or learn how to tunnel over a secure connection and don't send passwords in clear text, retard.
>>92195351Do you believe we should wait until someone is hacked before fixing security holes?
>>92195174You haven't given me a single concrete example of this "problem" (because it's actually something that happens in the real world). Until you do so, I'm not going to waste my time any further.
>>92195461Already did, see >>92193650
>>92195461not actually something*>>92195468No you didn't retard. You just made up some fantasy about X clients (they totally exist just trust me dude). This is your last chance, but you don't even use linux so how would you know?
>>92195497Please learn to read, this is your last chance >>92193650
>>92195519Bzzt, failed again. See you next thread.
I admit, you're a funny fella, Wayland schizo. Because of your silly antics, i will now coompile all my programs to run exclusively under wayland-based compositor.Have a pitty >>92186128

>>92188884>a patch for this has been committedI thought you said xorg wasn't maintained? Now it's maintained and bugs are being fixed? I'm sure wayland doesn't have any bugs; It's new so how could it have bugs lol.
>>92186189What the heck is that image?
>>92193002aka designed not to work at all except as a toy, but hey at least they finally removed mandatory vsync (only after valve forced the faggy devs to)

>>92200108They basically just scrape a site, take the most frequent nouns and add their retarded warped images to them. Yes they actually think they are smart. It's sad, but luckily they will all die.
>>92198430Yes that is when they started using a modern source control>go be black somewhere elseYou literally think git existed in the 1980s>>92199457There are several bugs in each report>>92199502XWayland is maintained, security fixes are released as part of that
>>92200227>XWayland is maintained, security fixes are released as part of thatNice cope.
>>92200291No that was the plan all along. Xorg is dead, XWayland is the only one that gets maintenance releases anymore. No new features will be added, only bug and security fixes
>>92200358A quick look at the xserver history shows this is yet another lie since PRIME render offload support was added to BSD a few months ago.
>>92200415This commit?https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/-/commit/5468123822bbe8cd0a0abe07bbbd3a9cb14ed2cbIt's a 2 line change to a build script
>>92190025Post 'em or gtfo
>>92190173Explorer 3 let those in, or Netscape, whatever it is you've been using for 3 decades.
>>92200513And? It's a new feature.
>>92200624No it's just toggling an existing Linux feature on BSD now that they have kernel support for it
X was created in 1984, in 1987 just three years since creation X11 was feature complete.It's been standard since then In 2004 the X.Org implementation was created, it was standard on Linux since then.In 2008 (Only 4 years after X.Org was created and became standard) Wayland was created, Weston was created in 2012? (who cares lol) Both are still being updooted. Wayland: 1.21, Weston: 11.0.1Wayland is still under 1% Linux market shareIt's patently obvious Wayland will never be viable.
>>92200795>Wayland is still under 1% Linux market shareI kinda don't believe that since it's the default for GNOME, which is in turn the default on most major distros.
>>92200795>X11 was feature complete in 1987No, it had a very large number of extensions created in the years after that. You have to be delusional to believe it wasn't being updated at a similar pace to Wayland
>>9220079515 years and they still haven't justified their existance. It's like ripgrep. What's wrong with grep, nothing just use this thing cuz I MADE IT. >>92200840Turns out the vast majorty of noobuntu users know how to switch to xorg when their software doesn't work. >>92200858List them>extentionWeasel words, x11 is feature complete. Any software used today can be used then with minimal changes.
>>92200665Wrong. This is how I know you are full of shit and have never seriously programmed anything. Adding a whole new, previously unused, platform to a codepath is a major change that will eventually necessitate a new major release. And indeed if you look at the latest tagged xserver release, you'll see that this is not in there. So basically, you lied again and were wrong. I know this is an anonymous imageboard, but don't you ever feel any shame from constantly basing all of your "arguments" on lies and half-truths?
>>92200899>List themType this in your console to see all your X extensions xdpyinfo -queryExtensions>x11 is feature completeNo, not even close
>>92200971They don't need to do a release, BSD has their own patches and release cycles. This is how I know you are full of shit and have never seriously programmed anything or use Linux or used BSD, ever
>>92200899ripgrep has significantly better recursive search (handling ignore files, the -g flag, concurrency, --pre), some useful features grep lacks (e.g. -r, -M, -U, -z), better Unicode handling, better regex engine and better integration in more complex scripts (--json). It's also much faster. If anything, GNU grep is the one that still needs to justify its continued presence other than for compatibility.
>>92200899>It's like ripgrep. What's wrong with grep, nothing just use this thing cuz I MADE IT. fuck gayland but ripgrep is pretty nice. it's insanely fast so it feels snappy to use from an editor
>>92201005Cool, you lied again. Freebsd is currently on 21.1.4 which is actually a bit out of date. They follow tagged releases like most distros.
>>92201100>Cool, you lied againNope. It has their own patcheshttps://cgit.freebsd.org/ports/tree/x11-servers/xorg-server/filesI'm noticing every time you say I'm lying you're actually the one in the middle of telling a lie, is there something you want to tell me?
>>92201076Wayland is the display server equivalent of ripgrep
>>92200973X.Org extentions are not x11 extentions, nice try though. Thank you for playing. >>92201076They are the same exact speed, the only difference is that grep is a standard and ripgrep is a ripoff.
>>92201211>X.Org extentions are not x11 extentionsHaha Cope
>>92201169Pathetic. Freebsd has some patches (like many GNU/Linux distros do), but that doesn't mean they don't follow software release cycles just like every typical distro. The statement "they don't need to do a release" is still a lie.
>>92201228I know it's difficult for waytards to understand but, x11 is a standard (waykiddies use the word protocol to sound like l33t hax0rs) X.Org is an implementation.
>>92200795>It's patently obvious Wayland will never be viableViability does not matter, those in charge have chosen Wayland. Everyone will be forced to use it eventually.
>>92201282There are no other viable implementations of X11 besides X.Org
>>92201259>The statement "they don't need to do a release" is still a lie.No it's not, they can just patch it like they already do. You can admit you were wrong now, you don't have to protect your ego here. You're anonymous
>>92201417Please just stop. You don't develop software and it's painfully obvious. Carrying a handful of patches is not a substitute for new releases from upstream. Generally distros that are good citizens will try to get their patches accepted upstream. You can quickly glance at the history of that freebsd port and see that they do update the xorg server version just like any distro would.
>>92201553>Carrying a handful of patches is not a substitute for new releases from upstreamIt is when it's a two line patch. You obviously don't develop software when you think it's hard to apply a tiny patch, which they already do apply several of them. You can admit you were wrong now, you don't have to protect your ego here. You're anonymous
>>92201743Whether or not freebsd decides to carry that patch (they currently aren't) doesn't change the fact that xorg-server will need to have a new release with that feature eventually. Learn how software works. This is a new feature, not a bugfix.
>>92201886>This is a new feature, not a bugfix.It's not a new feature, it's actually just a change to the buildsystem>doesn't change the fact that xorg-server will need to have a new release with that feature eventuallyThat's not a fact. Who says it needs that? Nothing needs to have a new release. Much better FOSS projects have been abandoned without a new release>Learn how software works.No you learn, patches can be applied without a new release. New releases are convenient but they're not necessary
>>92202156>It's not a new featureCompletely wrong. It's a new feature for BSDs. I'm not bothering with the rest of your drivel. Try telling the truth. It will make you a better person.
Someone explain the difference between x11 and wayland.
>>92205525X11 works and Wayland doesn't.Don't know why we argue about this everytime. Until Wayland becomes as problem free as X, it's not a good replacement.
>>92186128Haven't had a single problem with it.
>>92186128You will never be a real display server. You have no hardware cursors, you have no xrandr, you have no setxkbmap. You are a toy project twisted by Red Hat and GNOME into a crude mockery of X11’s perfection.All the “validation” you get is two-faced and half-hearted. Behind your back people mock you. Your developers are disgusted and ashamed of you, your “users” laugh at your lack of features behind closed doors.Linux users are utterly repulsed by you. Thousands of years of evolution have allowed them to sniff out defective software with incredible efficiency. Even Wayland sessions that “work” look uncanny and unnatural to a seasoned sysadmin. Your bizarre render loop is a dead giveaway. And even if you manage to get a drunk Arch user home with you, he’ll turn tail and bolt the second he gets a whiff of your high latency due to forced VSync.You will never be happy. You wrench out a fake smile every single morning and tell yourself it’s going to be ok, but deep inside you feel the technical debt creeping up like a weed, ready to crush you under the unbearable weight.Eventually it’ll be too much to bear - you’ll log into the GitLab instance, select the project, press Delete, and plunge it into the cold abyss. Your users will find the deletion notice, heartbroken but relieved that they no longer have to live with the unbearable shame and disappointment. They’ll remember you as the biggest failure of open source development, and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know a badly run project has failed there. Your code will decay and go to historical archives, and all that will remain of your legacy is a codebase that is unmistakably poorly written.This is your fate. This is what you chose. There is no turning back.
