I know Joanna has long talked about how insecure X11 is and how the Qubes team worked to isolate the GUI. Wouldn't it be simpler if Qubes became Wayland-only sooner?
It seems Fedora 25 will enable Wayland by default , but I think it will still have a XWayland layer for app compatibility. Will Qubes need that, too? Or can it become Wayland-only by the time Qubes OS 4.0 is out? Are there still too many components in the Fedora core that need X11 and can't be transitioned to Wayland anytime soon? Also, since flatpaks  will take full advantage of Wayland security, and it seems to be the app packaging format to take security seriously the most , maybe encourage flatpak use in Qubes 4.0 somehow, and install its runtime by default in Qubes 4.0?  https://linux.slashdot.org/story/16/08/20/0341200/fedora-25-to-run-wayland-by-default-instead-of-xorg-server  https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/SandboxedApps  http://flatpak.org/press/2016-06-21-flatpak-released.html  https://blogs.gnome.org/uraeus/2016/06/21/fedora-workstation-24-is-out-and-flatpak-is-now-officially-launched/  https://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/42320.html -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
