wayland vs mir vs xorg vs X11 ?
« on: January 15, 2015, 01:41:29 pm »
Hello.

FPC can deal with X11.

But what about all the others, can somebody explain the advantage of one to others ?

Would it be (extremely) difficult to do the others accessible to FPC ?

What is the future ?

Thanks.
I use Lazarus 1.8.0 32/64 and FPC 3.0.3 32/64 on Linux Mint Mate 17 32/64, Windows 10, Windows 7 32/64, Windows XP 32,  FreeBSD 64 and Mac OS X Snow Leopard 32.
Widgetset: fpGUI, MSEgui, Win32, GTK2, Qt, Carbon.

The main Lazarus *nix widgetsets only use X for some window management. The bulk of the work goes through either GTK or QT.

Wayland (and I assume Mir too) have a base X emulation, but even when that eventually would (a very big IF) disappear then it should be relative benign.

Maybe customdrawn needs some work, otoh it probably doesn't really work with detail X primitives and just cranks out bitmaps.

So nothing to worry about.
