    Default Downstream

    Hope it gets picked up by downstream fast.

    It probably gets picked up by ArchLinux fast.
    But Debian and Ubuntu still doesn't have 1.2.0.

    They're still on 1.1.0 or 1.0.5 or so.

    Fedora 20 doesn't yet seem to offer the Wayland tech preview.

    The wayland-mutter stuff is installed by default but no option present at the login screen.

    Yeah, but it's such a train wreck, aside being an incubation zone for a server OS - I installed the daily build yesterday which made me recall how shitty, weird and fancy is the installer - a bad design for smartphones applied to the PC, like putting lipstick on a pig.

If you haven't tried Ubuntu, you should, as it eclipses all other Linux distros that may have left a bad taste in your mouth due to them being to difficult to use. Canonical really likes to push technology forward as one of the most innovative companies in the world when it comes to operating systems and they have shown that outstanding vision combined with excellent execution is the way to go in the 21 century when it comes to IT. There really are only 3 companies that make operating systems: Microsoft, Apple and now Canonical. And Canonical is ascending fast to become a real pretender to the throne!
    And where, in all of that, do you rank Google, developers of the Android and Chromium OS / Chrome OS operating systems?

    For sure, anyone not loving Fedora must be an Ubuntu user. Another great example of Honton's logic.

    I dislike Canonical and hate Mir, all for wayland, but apparently I'll use Ubuntu & Mir cause I find Unity a lot better thought out than Gnome 3 and desktop Fedora, despite Fedora probably being technically superior, which is why Fedora sucks to me as a desktop solution but is good for servers. So I'm not ideological, I go for what's easiest and sucks less out of the box. If Fedora makes a redesign of Gnome 3 to the better I'll switch over.
