Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu We reported earlier on a blog post entitled "Ubuntu Report Card (2009)" where the author detailed how they felt the Ubuntu experience had improved over the years. In a follow-up series of articles looking at the future, Tanner Helland has written 10 different broadly-scoped feature requests that [he] 'and many others would like to see by the time Ubuntu 10.10 rolls around'.

One could argue that switching to a simpler architecture like Quartz would have required less resources than incrementally patching modern graphics features into X, but it's difficult to prove or disprove that.

True, but unfortunately almost every idea, such as project Berlin, almost always hits a snag when it comes to getting the drivers ported over.What I think is really required is for Nvidia, ATI and other minor graphics producers come together and tell the developers what they would consider the ideal model so that driver production is easier and can deliver the best bang for the buck for the end customer.

I would love to see a replacement but give the lack of will power by the big distribution companies like Red Hat, Novell and Connical to actually allocating real man power to the project - unfortunately any ideas that come about will never get off the ground because of it.

We will have to wait for Wayland and first for drivers to be moved in kernel.
