    Deal with it. It's not going away.

    Xanax anyone?

    Not choice for the sake of choice. That's the difference between 'choice' and 'waste'.
    It's not as if you didn't have the choice, right?

    As Ubuntu doesn't "contribute back" (2004-... rant) anyway, where's the loss for you? You'll have your Wayland (2013-... rant)/Gnome Shell (2010-... rant) based distros all the same.

    Can't emphasize this more. Even including the odd trolls way more than half of the "What have the wayland devs been doing in the last 5 years" crowd didn't know what a display server was before Canonical decided to flip the bird at the community.

    Ubuntu has the highest market share on Linux, so there will probably be Mir applications which we can't run on a Wayland based distribution. In the worst case scenario we might not be able to play steam games for example. Also if you are a new Linux user and happen to use Ubuntu you wont have the awesome possibility to install multiple desktop environments side by side which was THE most impressive thing for me when I switched to Linux.(XMir is NOT an option!)

    Oh, you're right, I didn't know Ubuntu was about to remove Xorg or Wayland from the repo, or even preventing you from compiling anything that's not M.S. approved. And of course, any PPA with other display servers will get killed and hacked to pieces and burned and cursed.

    Just like they did with Gnome Shell or Gnome 2 when Unity was released.

    Bad, baaaaaad Ubuntu.

    Oh, wait. Choice, you know.

    Ever since Canonical said "Ooh shiny, graphics, Mir", we have a lot of know-nothing Ubuntu users screaming "Mir, Mir, Mir, Now, Now, Now!"

    Damn well said. You, sir, deserve all the cookies.

    Watch out though, bo$$ will soon come along to call you a basement dweller, and all the other little ubuntu trolls will flock up to accuse you of "politics", whatever it means...

    You are missing the point. You can't have different desktop environments installed side by side without breaking your Unity desktop. I bet because of this the majority of new Linux users will most likely not even bother to try anything else. And the more important point, which you totally ignored, is that native Mir application will NOT run under Wayland or Xorg! If you can't see how this is bad I don't know what else to say.

    What about having WaylandMir and MirWayland, like we have XWayland and XMir?

    If something like that gets developed and works without any disadvantages I will happily stop complaining about Mir.
