This is your opportunity to seize the moment by declaring your allegiance to Wayland/XWayland - and earn thousands of fans/followers/users/developers right now.
Wayland played their cards right, and with their attitude even attracted the X developers to join in. X is not a -complete- throwaway, despite what Canonical slightly suggested in the original press release which I read, while aiming at Wayland.
There are -many- solid concepts in X, when properly distilled, transformed and reapplied to Wayland, can carry Wayland a light year further than it did X, while carrying X on its back.
The only reason Canonical is pursuing this "Peace" display server is because they are trying to be too eclectic, a la Apple style, to cultivate a certain image, possibly move away from their "freemium" model and/or make a buck and a dime off Linux. There's nothing wrong with that - but in my view, it won't happen while they are creating division in such a fundamental piece as a display server, by suffering from the NIH syndrome that is all too known to the Linux fanbase/developers.
If Canonical wants to stand on developer's toes instead of their shoulders, then let them - it's a guaranteed bite me in the ass comeback/ROI...when they go from a top ranking distro to a bottom ranking one.
