It's now clear that Wayland is the future of Linux

The FLTK Wayland platform improves on the X11 platform by
drawing everything antialiased.
Conceivably, this benefit could be transferred to the X11
Fl_Wayland_Graphics_Driver which is a complete Cairo-based
This would be a very interesting new feature.
However, if we're talking about X11 I believe also that in the
future all systems that provide X11 will also provide Wayland so
users can choose between X11 (maybe faster but not antialiased) and
Wayland (maybe slower but antialiased).
The only situation where you can't use Wayland and need X11 instead
would be a remote X11 display  which Wayland does not support.
 i.e. usually a remote application with the local display
(server) where the user is located.
It would still be interesting whether there's a noticeable
difference in drawing speed (local Wayland/Cairo vs. local X11) of
normal GUI operations.
