X.Org ------> ex-org?

Hello:

While getting my morning dose of espresso and IT news, I came across this article at The Register.

Tim Anderson wrote:

... Adam Jackson, project owner for the X.Org graphical and windowing system still widely used on Linux, said the project has been abandoned ...

Anyone familiar with what it says and the present situation?

Cheers,

A.

Re: X.Org ------> ex-org?

X11 is already in "maintenance mode", all current development is on wayland. The main issue is that Red Hat was the biggest contributor to X, so unless someone steps up, it will die - good or bad depending on how you look at it.

Red Hat are heavily invested in gnome project and that project are shifting to wayland, enabling it by default.  KDE project also have wayland implemented in their window manager.
