    Goals for the "Ubuntu Women Project" for the Ubuntu 14.10 cycle
    I hope this fares better than the Gnome version. The Gnome version seems to have garnered a bad name, but I think encouraging women in Linux is a worthwhile goal. Assuming of course that's what this is, I'm just going off the name, I have no idea what it actually entails.

    I would state my views on this, but I remember what happened to the thread the last time I did that...

    Uh, reality check here: Phoronix is not a Ubuntu forum... if you want an echo chamber where everyone circle jerks on how awesome everything Shuttleworth thinks of is, you're in the wrong place...

    I didn't say you're not allowed to have whatever opinion you like but it should be an opinion that's on topic. As Wayland is neither currently or at this time planned to be a part of the Ubuntu distribution it was a pretty pointless comment.

    Eh, just wait a couple of months... when Shuttleworth realizes no one else is going to support Mir, they'll probably switch to Wayland, like they did with Upstart->systemd.
