Maynard Desktop for Raspberry Pi

This showed up today on the Raspberry Pi blog feed and, if you follow the Raspberry Pi news very much, you probably have heard of the Wayland project, where they are attempting to get a better, faster desktop for the Pi.

You can read more about it on the official blog post, just search “Maynard desktop for Raspberry Pi” and read the Raspberry Pi blog post. Maynard is a replacement for LXDE, just like Wayland is going to be a replacement for X11 (LXDE being the desktop manager and X11 being the technology behind the GUI) and it is really slick. Very fast, faster than LXDE from what I saw, and much nicer looking, in my opinion.
