    X11 is the standard windowing system for Unix and Linux dating back to the 80s. Due to the history it has some severe drawbacks for 'modern' use-cases like multi-monitor, high DPI and touch interfaces. Wayland is the designated replacement for this. Core Wayland is much simpler and (intentionally) limited in the feature set, but can be extended by the implementations. The transition from X11 to Wayland has been going for years now and will still take a few years to be done
