Linux Yeah, it's the day of double-dippin' today. And, the contradiction couldn't be bigger. In one corner we have one of the oldest and most respected distributions, and in the other corner we have the sometimes controversial but immensely popular relative newcomer. Slackware 13.37 and Ubuntu 11.04 have been released.

Well, if this is suddenly so stable, so simple, and so wonderful, why have you not submitted any PPAs for doing just this?

Where are all the announcements about how stable, simple, and wonderful this is?

Just because you think it's so stable, simple, and usable, doesn't mean the rest of the world does. I don't see a mad rush of users switching over to Wayland right now.

So, again, why should the Ubuntu devs go to the trouble of making this work on the install CDs when it's not ready for "regular users" to use?
