I should think X will still be around for many many years.

Gotta love the diehards :)
That's why we have MATE desktop and gnome-session-fallback , because it all
changed from Gnome2 to be not the same and many people didn't like it and
wanted it as it was in Gnome2, thus MATE desktop was born.  (and

What annoys me about Wayland is that it is not true to itself.
They say it does not permit moving top level windows but I found (after
writing in the wiki that wayland cannot move windows) that it in fact can !!

I found using gtk2 or qt on wayland worked as expected, only gtk3 with
wayland does not allow window moving.

I found with gtk3 your forms Form_Move() event does not get triggered on
moving but in gtk2 and qt it does.

I found reading Window.X and Window.Y in qt and gtk2 gave the correct
position but gtk3 always said my window was X=45, Y=45 regardless of there
it was.

I concluded,, Wayland and gtk3 sucks, go back to X ;)
