    +1. You don't actually have more development on Wayland, it is just that the announcement of Mir lead to more news coverage on Wayland, so that people suddenly believe there would be more effort.

        Not to mention Mir was announced right around a time when many of Wayland's fruits are beginning to ripen.

          Thank you.

            Not even close - what they said was that they had no plans to support Wayland. Not having any plans when someone asked several years ago is a very different matter from saying that they weren't going to support it.

              I think it's a rainy windy road still . Late 2013's still distant, and we don't know yet the outcome of wayland.

                I for one applaud this. It's about time we get something 'fit for everyday use' out of wayland.

                  thats maybe not exact, but it was of course "close".

                    Out of curiosity, by 'does not work' you mean it won't even start X properly (rainbow colours immediately before even reaching the login screen)?

                    What happens if you disable acceleration? Is the desktop even usable if you do?

                      No, "we do not" and "we will not" are not close.
                      And "will not ever" is right out.
