    I would try it out myself, but every time I try to build Unity-next something breaks or fails and it doesn't build. So can anybody provide Screenshots?

        Wayland

        I rather see Wayland support.
        They should get Unity-next running on Wayland.

            It might... it all depends, how many people leave the Ubuntu boat to use other distros, once they can no longer use Real Linux software on Ubuntu.

                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.
