Linux distros are now moving towards Wayland (built by Canonical) and major DE players planning on dropping support for X11, which can pretty much kill the graphical desktops on BSD and many reluctand distros since Wayland relies pretty heavily on systemd (built by Red Hat), which no BSD distro and all the reluctant Linux distros doesn't have does it mean, that once the support for X11 ends, we may expect, apart from forking, that some developers would move towards other OS projects, which exist outside of linux-systemd-wayland ecosystem such as Haiku?

>>110284 also did you know, that Redox (OS written from scratch in Rust) gained more funds in 2020, than Haiku? picrelated

But Wayland has been mostly written by red hat, canonical took ages until they gave up on mir. Also soon there will be nvidia support for xwayland, so the last obstacle towards using it everywhere is gone. Who cares about some random distro noone uses anyways, if they want to stick with Xorg they can, they just have to maintain it themselves.

Irrelevant and obscurantist distros will continue to exist and brew their own alternatives to the systemd ecosystem. Maybe some will die, but some will persist. They are shit already anyway, so I don't worry about this.

>>110292 Good for you if it works. Personally, I don’t care for Distros whose gimmick it is not to use systemd. I just pick whatever is most suitable for my use case from the most popular, best supported ones. Right now it’s Debian for me and kubuntu for my mum.

Why are Linux users such special snowflakes? >mUH systemD >muh Arch is better than Ubuntu >muh Gnome is unusable, I prefer ratpoisonVM I just pick whatever of the best supported ones fits my needs best. Usually Debian or Kubuntu or something and problems weren’t.

Im pretty sure XFCE wont drop x11 any time soon and it works just fine in *BSD

>>110284 >since Wayland relies pretty heavily on systemd (built by Red Hat), which no BSD distro and all the reluctant Linux distros doesn't have IIRC Wayland was successfully ported to FreeBSD, and Gnome and KDE Plasma work fine. OpenBSD doesn't support Wayland but, ironically, Gnome (also Red Hat founded) still works with X11 while KDE Plasma doesn't. I don't know about other BSDs. >>134033 We just like to complicate our lives :)

>>190958 Gentoo/Artix/Devuan fag? Bro I tried Artix and that shit is even more unstable than vanilla Arch lahmao. soystemd is not that bad... /coping

>>134033 For me... Arch is way easier than Debian based distros... idk... I tried Linux back in 2008 when I was 13.. it was with Ubuntu 9.04 I do believe, then when they release 10.04 I switched to Fedora but did no tlike it so I hopped to Arch and never looked back... It is so simple and ez. At some point back in 2020 I tried Artix and I did like it but I had have problems due SoystemD then I switched to SolusOS which is great but the lack of binaries and the fact that I do not have time to compile and maintain .eopkg bins... made me switch back to Arch. Arch is simple and even a dumb monkey can handle it, that is why, I bet, VALVe switched from Ubuntu to Arch for its 3rd SteamOS version. Arch is so damn simple.
