    They should move away from Ubuntu with all that Mir/Qt stuff.

      I've been amazed for a little while now, using Elementary, that an Ubuntu based distro could be so darn snappy and feel so lightweight.

      They really did do a good job under the hood.

        One of the developers said on the HN thread that transitioning to XMir in the near future was on the agenda, though they haven't ruled out Wayland either.
        He also said that since they have such a heavy reliance on Launchpad and other Canonical services that moving to another distro e.g. Debian is out of the question in the near term.

          They should not rely on 2 layers of development to get upstream. There is Ubuntu, that gets packages from Debian (mainly), that gets packages from upstream.
          Ubuntu already showed everybody that it doesn't give a shit to versions based on it. Kubuntu, Lubuntu, etc. are not very happy with them.

          Fedora Project is a much more reliable way to get upstream packages, very bleeding edge. If they need something more stable they should move (fast) to Debian. The final result is that their packages should be based on upstream projects like GNOME, not a always-changing distro like Ubuntu. Mint already made a movement that way with LMDE.

          The products from canonical are as volatile as their decisions. =s
          Not solid like Debian or other projects.
