The main point of the discussion is solved by Gentoo having USE-flags that let the USER decide which optional features to build or not. And yes, gtk+:3 has a wayland USE-flag.
Do not use Ubuntu!
They're trying to get the "GNU/Linux == Ubuntu" into the heads of our kids.
And unfortunately they're doing this amazingly well marketing-wise.
I know a bunch of people new to Ubuntu (and Linux) who don't know/see that Ubuntu is "just" another distribution.
That will get worse since Valve has chosen Ubuntu as the tier-one distribution. :/

Well it's obviously a matter of personal taste.
It does some things very easy which helps new users, indeed. The installation process for instance.
But incredible level of polish? Everything works out of the box and w/o bugs?
Not my experience at all.
