This is what I tried to explain to some gnome fanboys. If gnome wasn't be such broken mess it would have a chance to compete with Ubuntu and Unity. There's KDE that's doing very well, but it probably doesn't have enough corporal backend to encourage blob makers to support Wayland. Gnome has to be stronger to compete and show Wayland is the way.
