As much as I dislike what ubuntu is doing these days (unity, amazon ads, mir), I don't understand why people have a problem with them asking people to test a development release that sounds like it only works on intel drivers. (Right? No radeon, noveau, or proprietary - does it work on anything but intel?)

True enough, but that time wasn't the day a distro shipping it decided to enter beta status. Wayland was widely considered "nowhere near ready" at that point in time.
