you might not give a shit about java - and you are a very small minority. If debian is so great for musicians - why are there debian forks for musicians?
And please don't try to tell me that the pulseaudio infection in ubuntu is a good thing.

X.org supports more hardware than Wayland does by far - and I'm referring *just* to display hardware a year old or less. X+Mesa 7.10 supports - and with DRI at minimum - all but the most recent AMD GPUs (HD6xxx). Desktop, portable/Mobility, all can use one of two drivers today - r300g or r600c (with r600g being worked on). However, Canonical has decided to use X+r600g - despite being quite aware that r600c is still eating Gallium's lunch on the newer hardware. In fact, r600c has, in typical desktop usage, tied, if not actually begun beating, FGLRX performance metrics - something I never expected to see. And Gallium is *ahead* of Wayland.
