Unfortunately, the way Ubuntu is going is kinda sad for the desktop. Only time will tell...

People that want to know more about what's happening with Canonical and Ubuntu should probably follow their ubuntu onair channel on YouTube.
In one of the last session Jono Bacon confirmed that 14.04 will ship wit X and Unity 7
Won't be in 14.04 LTS, as disappointing as that may be, but putting it in LTS as first ever version would be pretty crazy. Keep it for 14.10, and then make sure it's used by default in 16.04. If Android 5.0 introduces major changes in the driver architecture, that gives them time to adapt, too.
That said, there's nothing in the Wayland protocol demanding the use of C for compositors. Compositors can be written in any language, including C++, as long as the resulting code is able to call the C functions in libwayland.
Nope. Right tool for the right job, there is no one language that is best for all applications. Classes and inheritance are entirely pointless in many of them.you can kinda make your our workarounds around that, but its better just to use a language that supports classes and inheritance.

I rather go with Wayland instead.
It seems Wayland will the standard across all Linux distributions to come, with Mir being some Ubuntu-only NIH thing.
