Wayland might become the primary display server and replacing X on several distros in 2014.
My understanding is that it will provide a snappier experience than X, which is nice if true.
However, did not find any hint on the internet if Openbox will run on Wayland (without xwayland).
It is my understanding that GTK3 has Wayland support and so does Gnome 3 (Gnome 3 runs on Mutter...).
Why I'm telling this?
Well Gnome 3 surely does not match alphaOS vision (being lean etc.) but if alphaOS wants to make use of Wayland in the future (and if Openbox will not be ported) alphaOS needs to find another lean solution.
Maybe I found it.
The other day I was looking through the internet to see what the former SolusOS founder (Ikey) is up-to nowadays, and I found this:https://github.com/evolve-os/budgie-desktop
Budgie Desktop integrates with the GNOME stack, providing a powerful yet traditional desktop using modern techniques and technology.
The core components are (besides libmutter):
budgie-wm: This is a simple wrapper around libmutter, which is used by GNOME Shell. We use it to manage our windows, customize animations and provide a wallpaper of your choice.
budgie-panel: A traditional panel that currently sits at the bottom of the screen. Future versions will enable users to use 3rd party plugins to extend their panel experience to suit their needs.
budgie-session: Simply bootstraps the components of the desktop to get you working straight away. Does nothing more than launch gnome-settings-daemon, the window manager and the panel.
Not saying this is the way alphaOS has to go!
Posting it here in order to save this information.
Just in case...
