Accelerated Desktop - Weston/Wayland

Interesting post about an accelerated desktop. Confused about why it has two names. However a step in the right direction. Sounds like its still at the early adopter stage. Its not a fully accelerated desktop but looks like it farms out a lot of layout related stuff the the GPU. The video shows fancy fading in and out, I hope it will deliver better performance to a standard desktop scheme too.
