I'm not impatient, but I hope they ship this by June 2014. By that time, they would be where Apple was with Quartz a decade ago. I forgive them, Linux's main money is in servers, not the couple of nerds who run it on their desktops at home. Still, Red Hat thinks its important to push Wayland through.
there's versioning in the protocol so that they can do just that, but I don't think its their first choice of tactic
