Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Finally. Finally the leader of a major distribution who has the guts to stand up and say what a lot of people have known for a long time, but didn't dare to say because it usually leads to a storm of criticism. Mark Shuttleworth has announced that Ubuntu will be moving away from X.org, opting to go with Wayland instead.

In my 10 years using Linux, I've never had a problem with C&P. Why so many people using Linux have problems with it?

What is not working?

I believe there are 3 completely separate copy and paste systems running under Linux, and the one in X isn't even used by most people. They use the stuff that Gnome/KDE do instead. It would be nice to see all this consolidated into 1 Wayland system.
