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.

So? Is Shuttleworth trying to force other distros to stop using x.org?


No. He's killing the best "4noobee" desktop distro. Mark wants a netbook-only distro. That's it.

I thought he was a genius. Now *I* hate him with a passion and I hope someone will stop him before it's too late.

Wayland? Yes. I'm all for it IIF I can keep network transparency.

(DES)unity? NO FUCKING WAY!
