X11, Window Managers "This is the first real release of Wayland and Weston. Wayland is the protocol and IPC mechanism while Weston is the reference compositor implementation. The 0.85 branch in both repositories is going to be protocol and interface stable. We have a series of protocol changes on the table before 1.0 but this branch marks a stable point before we jump into that." Change is coming to the Linux world. And yes, I get the irony of using this particular icon, but it's the closest I could find.

[qWith that kind of conformist mentality of "Let's never make progress because we are too afraid of change" [/q]

That's not what I said. There is a difference between making changes to improve things, compared to "lets make changes that breaks everything and just be different - f*ck the end-users.". Unity, Gnome 3, KDE4 falls in the latter category.

End-users don't like change, so if changes need to be made (like for the sake of improving things), those changes needs to happen is small digestible bits. Software Development 101.
