I didn't know that FLOSS was a mafia organisation until I read this discussion thread. Canonical is doing it's own display server, so what? Do you know what "F" in "FLOSS" means?

Wayland community looks like a very scary place to be. Technical issues and merits can be worked on without having to waste energy on solving social issues and fighting the mafia. I'd pick Mir (or completely new) over Wayland any day in the week. Mir is under an open source licence. Thank you Canonical for contributing to the open source SW pool.
