There's still a lot of misconceptions about what Wayland is and how it in particular affects the user experience of interacting with the Linux desktop.

In this presentation I want to talk about the meaning(s) of the term 'Wayland' and outline how these fit together.

I also want to briefly discuss how the development of Wayland itself works and how this advances the Linux desktop ecosystem.
