Title: wayland vs mir vs xorg vs X11 ?
Post by: Fred vS 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.

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.
