Red Hat to Remove Xorg from RHEL 10


The decision allows development to focus on Wayland.

Red Hat has announced the decision to remove Xorg server and other X servers (except Xwayland) from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 10.

In a blog post, Carlos Soriano Sanchez explains that the transition from the X Window System to the newer Wayland-based stack has been happening for the past 15 years. But, now, he says, “Wayland has been recognized as the de facto windowing and display infrastructure solution.”

During this transition period, Red Hat has been supporting both the Xorg and Wayland stacks, and this decision will allow the development community to focus their efforts solely on a modern stack and ecosystem, Sanchez says.
