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.

>Finally.

Finally, nothing. This is complete BS. Wayland is trash compared to X. As for Ubuntu, they have been getting worse and worse. "Unity" was just about enough, this on top of it is more than enough to break the camel's back. Ubuntu is irrelevant now. I don't care about it anymore, and certainly will not recommend it. If foolish people want to continue using Ubuntu, fine, they can have their pointless pseudo-Windows. I will stick with real Linux, thank you very much.

Is Debian a real Linux?

I'm asking, because Ubuntu is basically Debian with a few opinionated choices.

And if Debian is not real Linux, I don't know what the heck is one.

You are an idiot, let's see if you call it "trash" again in 2 years from now when X is extinct and replaced by Wayland.

Fine, we don't want to know, go away and use your "real" Linux with your ancient X server.

If anything is extinct in just two years, it will be Wayland. If Wayland ever displaces X completely, it will take a lot more than two years.
