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.

we're choosing to prioritize the quality of experience over those original values, like network transparency


And that's why I still don't use Ubuntu for anything other than quick tests in virtual images.

The quality of my experience depends as much on those "original values", as on new features. Dropping or devaluing useful capabilities in favor of new bling, well, I couldn't agree less.

Mind you, Ubuntu is heading toward the average joes. There are hundreds of distros that will still continue to use X.
