Hardware has moved on since the 80s, so has the functionality we've come to expect. It's not enough anymore to throw a few pieces of metal on the ground and say "here's your car". you can still do it, but you're now talking about a tiny subset of users that want things that way.

What is the minimum setup that is possible with Wayland?
