Window managers and desktop environments in the Open Source community number in the dozens, but only a small number of those include compositors; fewer still can boast that they run seamlessly on embedded devices or in Wayland. Enlightenment is so flexible that it was chosen by Samsung to be to window manager for their new Linux-based mobile operating system, Tizen, in addition to being used by tens of thousands of users worldwide for over a decade. With the current development of E19, it's time to take a step back and look at the main feature: compositor design. This presentation will give a brief introduction to compositing and window management before jumping directly into the history of Enlightenment's compositor architecture and its progression to the current state of full Wayland and X support.
