Fedora to Drop X for Wayland Too

by Keith Vance

First Ubuntu said they're dropping the X Window System for Wayland, and now Fedora says they will too.

Red Hat's community Linux distribution, Fedora, is dumping the X Window System for Wayland.

It's not going to happen right away. According the ComputerWorld's Steven Vaughan-Nichols, Fedora 15 will include Wayland as an option for users to tinker with, but X will remain the default.

There's a ton of work to be done before Wayland can topple X, but with Ubuntu and now Fedora on its side, progress could come quickly.
