    Phoronix: Wayland 1.6 & GNOME 3.14 Are Shaping Up Well

    Wayland 1.6 and GNOME 3.14 are shaping up to be a great couple with this next major Linux desktop release featuring Wayland support out-of-the-box...

    But Ubuntu is pushing Mir, while I want Wayland!

    I hope that Wayland 1.6 gets pushed to the upcoming Ubuntu.

      I'm also want this however most probably they will continue with Mir because they spent money and time for it. They won't want to throw their works to garbage.

        This is called the Sunk Cost Fallacy.

          Maybe, Wayland 1.5 is going to be in Debian jessie.

            It is in Debian Jessie.

              In Canonical's eyes this is very true. But they have been informed since before Mir was even released that the idea of it was a bad one.

              In a world of sheep, power=popularity. Canonical is depending on this, thinking everyone will just switch to Mir because their repositories have (or at least had) the largest user base. But, most (not all) of the linux community are wolves; including some of Canonical's own users.. We're not going to buy into something simply because the shepherd is trying to guide us in another direction.

              Another thing to think about is Canonical's credibility. Unity and the Ubuntu Software Center right now are the only major products they made that are still gaining traction. They've already ditched a lot of other big things like Ubuntu One and upstart, so its not going to look good to leave mir considering their dismissive attitude toward everything that was against Mir.

                The problem is that I doubt Gnome 3.14 will be on Jessie.

                So, you'll have Wayland 1.5 but no Desktop environment to use it.

                  Gnome 3.12 is a unusable piece of shit (no offense, it's just designed for tablets both the environment and the applications and I liked it until 3.8 and I'm now in 3.10, from this point it's no longer suitable for a desktop, applications are turning really weird) and I think 3.14 will be worse. At least we'll have Wayland which is nice.

                    Which is why I and many others use it every day as a desktop environment. Wait what? Oh, never mind it's just an idiot who thinks his opinion is fact.

                      Really? I got the impression that there are some wolves, some sheep and a lot of clowns supplemented by the occasional noob, eco-dude, no-bul**it-person, I-want-to-get-work-done person, rocker and a somewhat big camp of otaku.

                      It's open source and freedom, pretty much the antithesis of uniformity and dictatorship (which I think is cool).

                      You might notice that this is not in defense of Canonical for obvious reasons. I'm just convinced that your comparison is way off.

                        Hmm why would u then not just switch to another distribution? There are so much good alternatives. There is Debian, ok even older than ubuntu, but especialy if you want to use a LTS release for several years anyway, Debian is very good about using a non-current version for several years.

                        Opensuse is also good for people that dont want to have the newest stuff but more stable... if you dont like that also mandrake is interesting.

                        Also last but not least (the opposite) u have if you want more or less new stuff archlinux and fedora is a option.

                        Fedora if you want really "bleeding"-Edge stuff and u love freedom like gpl think about it, fedora is a really great distro. if you want only very stable (only when its upstream stable) stuff, u can use archlinux and it gives you good access to use unfree stuff.

                        And even if you really love because u dont know better much about ubuntu, use mint instead, they should switch to wayland.

                          gnome 3.12 is not good for full screen games, i move out bacause of it, most of times he crash dota 2 when you minimize, i report the bug for gnome 3.10 for 3.12 and the bug continued, and it's not happen with unity or kde,... and the new directions they mad in this last versions are really bad

                            There are bugs in Gnome, some of them are even quite serious. Not sure what this has to do with the Gnome "being designed for tablets" nonsense.
