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.
