Happy Christmas with Plasma Wayland Live Image

Posted on

I just published a live Plasma image with Wayland. A great milestone in a multi-year project of the Plasma team led by the awesome Martin G.  Nowhere near end-user ready yet but the road forward is now visible to humble mortals who don’t know how to write their own Wayland protocol.  It’ll give a smoother and more secure graphics system when it’s done and ensures KDE’s software and Linux on the desktop stays relevant for another 30 years.

  1. Hi Jonathan, I just want to say that I am happy with the Wayland endeavour and I think it is one of the few (or perhaps the only) Linux endeavour that I currently agree with. I think you are correct in saying or alluding that it will be a valuable asset. I suspect it will also make it easier for third parties who will want to create a wholly new “X” or to experiment with different styles or models of the ‘windowing system’. I think it is an amazing thing even if I know nothing about it but it has the sound of it. Good luck, Xen.
