Yes. And I think it was implicit, and that it was obvious that it was, that he meant nobody outside of Ubuntu, and specifically out of the main flavor.

And how is this relevant? Ubuntu isn't a geek distro and your average Joe User probably doesn't even know what a display server is. The community boycotts Mir because a) it has no advantage over Wayland and b) people don't trust Canonical anymore.

I'm using Arch now, have for a long time, and I look at Ubuntu thinking "Why? Why would I ever?", but then I remember they used Gnome2 back then, and their distro was cleaner on the whole; more in sync with the rest of the community.
Nowadays, everything just seems to break. Prime examples are Pulse and URL resolving, but of course, nothing is safe from the error-fest that is Ubuntu and its derivatives. Oh and fixing it? Yeah, no, not with all that bloat. Horrible.
McShuttles? Marky-Mark McSpaceshuttle? Isn't that cute he thinks he's smart.

It will slow Wayland's adoption which is irresponsible, but they have the right to do whatever they want. If they wanted to replace GNU userspace with BSD, they can. If they wanted to replace the Linux kernel with their own, they can. They're not required to care what others think.
I moved to Arch because Ubuntu doesn't work for me not because OH MY GAWD CANONICAL BETRAYED ME. Grow up.
Read the post again - he never claimed that they did. What he did say was that Ubuntu has done their best to isolate and generally piss all over everyone else they used to associate with. Now, true, Ubuntu was under no obligation to play nice, but just as everyone has the right to say what they want under free speech, we all have full right to be offended and criticize them to death over it.
