Glimpse the future of the Linux desktop with the Wayland-based Hawaii


Although the Maui project, and in particular the Hawaii desktop, are experimental at this point, you might find the experiment interesting if you are curious about a desktop based on Wayland and Qt Quick. The easiest way to test Hawaii is via VMware player, but you might get a broader impression if you choose to set up Hawaii using the Arch packages.

The developers created Maui and Hawaii as open community projects, however, it is impossible to predict how things will continue. If you want to get in touch with the development team, try the #maui-project channel on the Freenode server.
