    Software might run on Ubuntu, when they maintain a working Wayland version. I really doubt that KDE, Gnome, XFCE, Enlightenment, ..., adapt to a display server that can break for them anytime because Canonical doesn't care for other DEs and develops Mir with Unity only in mind. Ubuntu will fail, in the same way Windows will fail because of bad decisions, although they are the face of desktop computing and the most popular OS on desktops.
    Wayland is the future, either you like it or not. Anything that can't run on Wayland will cease to exist sooner or later.
    android went with surfaceflinger but it fail? ubuntu will be in a league of its own, it will prob be more userfriendly because they will have control of everything going on in ubuntu. ubuntu will have a better chance going against windows like this than with wayland. ubuntu will rock i cant wait!!!!

      Android is a special case, they aim at the mobile space and don't want to be a fully fledged desktop Linux at the same time, for them compatibility with the rest of the Linux environment is not really important. For a desktop Linux working with the rest is crucial.

      You mean like we see with another OS where one company controls the whole stack, Windows 8?

      Care to explain why that is the case?
