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.

No. He's killing the best "4noobee" desktop distro. Mark wants a netbook-only distro. That's it.


And you base that assertion on, what? That he wants to use a simpler and perhaps better performing graphics system? Wow, talk about jumping to conclusions.

I thought he was a genius. Now *I* hate him with a passion and I hope someone will stop him before it's too late.


Maybe his genius is not to listen to whiners and losers.

Wayland? Yes. I'm all for it IIF I can keep network transparency.


And you will still be be to run an Xserver.

Nope. That he targets a user base whose level of noobness might be far lower than his [the poster above] in the future, lowering the usefulness of the distro towards null for him. And I understand that, but thankfully, there still exist distros that don't follow suit.
