X11, Window Managers Intel on Ubuntu's XMir:

We do not condone or support Canonical in the course of action they have chosen, and will not carry XMir patches upstream.

Ubuntu has to do virtually all its work on Xmir drivers by itself. No one else supports it.

Fedora succeed enough on my disk sectors. ;) I like Linux distros that are simply Linux distros. Ubuntu is slowly departing from that ecosystem.

RH charge for their Dekstop, while Ubuntu is free with paid extras. I think this is the cause of popularity.
