Session Abstract

Possibly one of the most used Wayland compositors and yet least known might be Enlightenment. It is the compositor for Tizen and thus drives 100's of millions of TVs, Watches, Fridges and phones. It takes a different approach from Weston by being full featured in the compositor, yet still being lean and fast compared to full desktop compositor shells for desktop environments. Learn a bit about how all of this works, the design decisions made, their upsides and downsides and more.
