I disagreem Wayland is not the next version of Xorg, it's completely its
separate thing
Xorg is a display server that manages everything it needs to render,
whether it be a window manager, or GUI programs, or whatever.
Wayland on the other hand is a specification which each WM separately
needs to implement into their WM to function.
Think of it as comparing to an email server vs the SMTP protocol; the
one is a dedicated program, whereas the other is a certain set of rules
implemented into such program.

So with Wayland, the display server is cooked right into the window
manager, whereas with Xorg, the window manager and display server are 2
separate entities.


Did you know that?
90% of all emails sent on a daily basis are being sent in plain text, and it's super easy to intercept emails as they flow over the internet?
Never send passwords, tokens, personal information, or other volunerable information without proper PGP encryption!

If you're writing your emails unencrypted, please consider sending PGP encrypted emails for security reasons.
You can find my PGP public key at:

Every good email client is able to send encrypted emails.
If yours can't, then you should consider switching to a secure email client, because yours just sucks.

My recommendations are Claws Mail or NeoMutt.
For instructions on how to encrypt your emails:
