Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Finally. Finally the leader of a major distribution who has the guts to stand up and say what a lot of people have known for a long time, but didn't dare to say because it usually leads to a storm of criticism. Mark Shuttleworth has announced that Ubuntu will be moving away from X.org, opting to go with Wayland instead.

network transparency and goodness

Sure, Wayland isnt network transparent, but Windows isnt network transparent either and RDP is pretty good.

I see no good reason that you couldnt render a duplicate desktop to an RDP, NX, VNC, ICA, X, or better yet SPICE to serve up to remote clients. For that matter, Wayland is a compositer so it could handle scaling or depth reduction or any number of other things to reduce network needs before rendering to the remote display.

Kind of a moot point I think. Good chance you already have rdesktop or vnc and you could likely use X as well.
