    I don't see why everyone should stop working on software that works just because some other guys decided to reinvent the wheel. Also I really don't see the benefit of Wayland and Mir from a user perspective right now, so i'm glad people don't just abandon Xorg and keep improving it.

    Wayland:
    • Not as bloated as X (so less Disk/RAM usage)
    • Higher efficiency (less CPU usage)
    • Tearing free by design

    There might be more, but that's what comes to my mind immediately.

    Mir:
    • Nothing

    Ok you're just trying to hate mir. Mir I think intends to do all the same things as wayland except it also strives to be compatible with current android drivers. I think it was a low blow for Canonical to decide to make this without telling anyone, but if they keep it up, mir will be better than X for modern systems.
