Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth: "I simply have zero interest in the crowd who wants to be different. Leet. 'Linux is supposed to be hard so it's exclusive' is just the dumbest thing that a smart person could say." He's right. Lots of interesting insights in this blog post - I may not agree with everything Ubuntu does, but at least it's doing something.

but at least the fragmentation also offers users a choice.


And the same does not apply to X/Wayland/Mir? Suddenly it's bad to have a choice?

The latest scare being their proposed switch to an in-house display server instead of Wayland or Xorg.


You could say the same about Wayland/Westin. Why make your own new display server and protocol instead of improving X?
