It seems the only company in Linux land that does not want to support Wayland is Canonical (Ubuntu), surprise , surprise...

It's been interesting to follow the various desktop camps as they discuss the future of their software in relation to desktop graphical servers. Xorg has been the recipient of some mighty harsh words as far back as when it was still XFree. GNOME already stated their interest in developing for Wayland and Grasslin thinks even the smaller projects will move away from X as well. Basically, Grasslin thinks Wayland is the future.

Are you surprised though. These guys are going in a completely different direction to everyone else, and every feature/ suggestion gets shot down by the community. If they worked on Wayland they would spend half their time justifying and fighting for every addition they want. Sometimes its just easier to go at it alone.

I'm interested to see how wayland and Mir stack up to each other at the end of the day.
