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.

"what good would network transparency do on a desktop or netbook"

I frequently open apps from different machines. I'm on the couch with my notebook but want my desktop's browser and plugins; done. Need to pop open a GUI app from the notebook while someone else is using it; done. Want to use a work issued notebook a s think client around the house; done (by liveCD and ssh -X).

Granted, it's not a universal need but it's darn handy to have available.
