    Wayland-powered phones are being sold right now : http://www.jolla.com/

    We can't say the same for the Mir ones yet.

      No, just no. Unity also targets the desktop and the desktop certainly isn't dead and won't be soon, even "tower" PCs.

        Why do you keep comparing Mir to Wayland?

        Mir = protocol agnostic display server. This means, it can support X11, Wayland, or something else. Is there a Mir protocol?
        Wayland = protocol

          Unity is a wonderful shell for power users, or at least keyboard-driven power users. I'm completely hooked on it by now.

          You obviously don't know what I think it means.

            It's funny that the ones who compare Canonical and Shuttleworth to Apple and Jobs are the same ones who think they are entitled to tell people what is The Right Way to Workę. In open source, people do whatever they feel is right for them, and no one has the right to tell anyone how to do shit. There's no open source bible.

They're constantly missing out on the main benefits of open source, they think it's just a convenient way to get code developed for their inhouse solutions. In short, they're trying too much to be like Apple, but without having all the money, massive resources for r&d, their own hardware line, etc... And even Apple is fading already, even with their huge resources - so why does Canonical, a small company that can't even afford to release a phone without a crowdsourcing campaign, think they can succeed with the same strategy? It's just plain foolishness with possibly streaks of megalomania.

                  I do not intend to waste my words and time on obvious relations.

                    Very unlikely. That's like saying, "by 2016 refrigerators will be dead."

                      When Canonical saw Wayland taking long time they thought they can do better. Are they starting to realize now that it's not an easy job, or they are still thinking they can do better than the Wayland camp?
                      Wayland on the mobile is already in the market (Jolla), and on the desktop it's already in preview. By the time 16.04 is released Wayland will probably be a reality already. Canonical has clearly taken the wrong path and they need to correct it soon instead of throwing their money down the drain.
