Google Replacing X11 with Freon in ChromeOS
X11 is very long in the tooth and there has been a lot of talk of replacing it. Google has leapfrogged most of the Linux field and done so with their own X11 replacement named Freon that they are already implementing in ChromeOS! Freon should offer better performance and better battery life than X11.
This has really been a long time coming. X11 is very old and a lot of people have been trying to figure out how to get this replaced. Probably makes sense that Google really just took the lead on this.
