EDIT: I realize there may be a simple explanation... Is it about Ubuntu's plans to deploy X.org?!

Many people now boot to a black screen. At least that prevents them from getting as far as experiencing the GPU hangs.

No, you seem to be on crack. In terms of giving focus to distros, I'm pretty sure X.org has Ubuntu at the back of the bus. There wasn't a single X.org person at UDS this year.
No Bryce, I wan't on crack, or anything else. I am just paranoid that Canonical would take even more away from their upstream main source, Debian (www.debian.org), apart from the limelight (http://www.google.com/trends?q=debian%2C+ubuntu).

My post was an overreaction, and I admit and apologize for that. Sorry.
