One of the significant advantages of Wayland is about security, to isolate input/output of every single windows, encourage non-root user running the core process, as well as discouraging root user running any graphical applications.

  • how is wayland exactly integrated in current gnome stack of Tumbleweed/SLE (gnome-shell, mutter)
  • how does the Wayland and XWayland's security model differ from Xorg
  • what is preferred to do if we want to use root running graphical applications
