Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu has come under a decent amount of flack over the past few months, particularly over their decision to use the 'Dash Search' to return results from Amazon by default in their most recent release.

1. Wayland had its chance. It's been there for five years and we'll be always waiting "a few more months". Sure, it's "ready" now, but why isn't everybody implementing it then? Why hasn't been X.org been replaced in every distro?

2. What "two years"? If you're going to lie, why not make it, let's say, twelve? Mir development started just a few months ago. Sure, they might have said so publicly or asked questions to Wayland developers. They decided to make some research by themselves first and they don't trust a group of devs that couldn't get a display server ready in five years. I can't blame them for acting like this.

I don't give a damn if Canonical takes some steps in house, then make their plans public. All this noise about Mir is idiotic and you know what? By announcing publicly they would be trying/making their own display server when they started working on it, the noise wouldn't have been lower, so why should they even care?
