Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Canonical has today publicly confirmed that they are working on a new cross-platform displayer server for Ubuntu. Called 'Mir', the X Window Server replacement is tasked with 'enabling development of the next generation Unity'. Which, in yet another about-turn, is to be rebuilt in Qt/QML." It'll be used for all Ubuntu variants (phone, tablet, desktop), and the first version will be released come May.

More importantly, more drivers exist for SurfaceFlinger than exist for Wayland because of Android. If anything, Android is the standard, not Wayland.

Both are unproven, and its a big risk for Ubuntu, but lets not pretend like Wayland has critical mass or clout at this stage in the game.
