Hi guys,

I already started a similar topic some months ago where I asked you your
opinion. Now, the project seems to move fast, this is why I start another
The aim is different now, and I want to have some details from Suckless
community / developpers about the upcoming technology.

After reading many Wayland articles, I think it will completely change
Linux ecosystem and I'm a bit worried.
Wayland introduces fuzzy aspects and they're not very clear for me (POSIX
compliant, KMS and network transparency).

Since I like many softwares like dwm & st, I wonder how I'll do when
Wayland will become the norm (as systemd).
I really hope you consider porting your essentials softwares on Wayland,
because major distribs like Fedora or Ubuntu plan to use it.
I think it's a dilemma: using your work on non-Wayland distribs or dropping
my favorites softwares for Wayland...

Here my concerns (I'm not the only one, I guess).

Best Regards.
