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.

Problem with VNC and RDP is that you can't do it for a single application. It's "whole desktop login" or nothing. There are a *lot* of uses for connecting to a remote system and running just a single GUI app, without having any GUI installed on the remote system.


I don't know about you, but I've had enough "lost work because of network disconnection for few minutes" to stop trusting X forwarding.
