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.

Smart ass comment. Nicely done.

But seriously, pretty looking desktops are only acceptable when they work as intended, are well rounded and finished products. Not what we get these days as "release ready" desktop distros.

Back in the early 2000's it was halfway acceptable to get desktops that were a bit flaky and under featured. In 2012 it simply isn't acceptable to release alpha software and expect people to accept experimental bananaware as the final product.

Release a preview if testing is necessary. Most people will try it out and hopefully report back.
