Trying out Sway and Wayland
Is Wayland ready for prime time yet? Find out here.
Wayland is a modern display server protocol that will eventually replace X11. It is still not quite a hundred percent there, but it has been improving steadily and gaining ground over the past years. It is expected to become the new default display server on Linux systems at some point in the near future… Whatever near means in that context.
This past weekend I had some time to play around with Sway, a window manager and Wayland compositor that mimics i3. How did it go?
