Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth: "I simply have zero interest in the crowd who wants to be different. Leet. 'Linux is supposed to be hard so it's exclusive' is just the dumbest thing that a smart person could say." He's right. Lots of interesting insights in this blog post - I may not agree with everything Ubuntu does, but at least it's doing something.

TO be honest, I don't really care what becomes the standard, but whichever actually delivers on its promises (and considering Wayland's delays and Ubuntu's tendency to half ass something before changing directions it could be neither) first will win. It will be open source and adopted by others. Now stop trying to win the "political battle" and get to coding!

While that would be great, I don't think many other Linux distributions adopted Unity and Ubuntu did not abandon Unity.

There was already stiff competition for window managers and desktop environments. People are jsut waiting for a replacement to X. Completely different situation.
