Integrating X and Wayland

A session at The Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit

Wednesday 4th April, 2012

2:00pm to 3:00pm (PST)

While Wayland offers improved performance and the ability to create interesting new user experiences, the need to support legacy X applications will remain with us for a long time to come. Integrating X applications into the Wayland environment is a key requirement for the successful implementation of many X to Wayland migration plans. This presentation will describe the existing X environment, then describe how X works in Wayland and discuss the performance implications of the transition.
