    Where in my comment that you have quoted, did i specifically talk about Gnome? (i did not). I was actually talking quite broadly, about FOSS projects, in general. ~ which means everything from the linux kernel to compilers, from toolkits to various applications. ie: not some argument specific to Gnome vs. Canonical (as you are doing right now). You blaming Gnome for how Canonical goes about their business is hilarious. the fact is Canonical has ALWAYS operated this way ~ this isn't some by-product of Gnome rejecting their patches - that is just beyond moronic, dude ... :\ regardless, i am not here to defend Gnome. (if that is what you were hoping for?)...

    the only thing i will say about Gnome vs. Canonical - is that (generally speaking) Gnome's projects are much more essential than any code Canonical puts out. (Hell, Ubuntu/Unity is built on Gnome, for fcsk sake! ...and while i do use _some_ of the gnome stack, i'm not a Gnome-Shell user, nor a hardcore gnome fanboy.

    anyway, you are delusional to think (and vocalize) such silly notions.

      The sooner Mir dies, the less damage it will cause.
      Hopefully Mir will become great success and all you will eat your words!

      You don't get it, do you? Canonical's plan for Ubuntu is to achieve MacOS-like seamless integration. Stitching together components from right and left won't cut it. They need to to be at the steering wheel, at least for the components that interface with the user. That will allow them to build deeper emotional connection with their users and thous stronger brand. It has been proven that enstablished projects have their own agendas and will not bend to Ubuntu needs. Also forking and maintaining huge patch sets lead to dead end. Mir and Unity are necessary investments if Ubuntu is to become something more than just a Gnome distro.

        Unfortunately, if they don't know how to drive it, they can crash the car very fast.

          You are so naive. They (canonical), even didn't hired the right people, who know what they are doing, instead bunch of dickheads, who didn't studied the other alternatives first. I wish them spectacular fail!

              I think this is the assertion that is being questioned.

If not - it will fail, so who cares? Go on Canonical, show what you can do and don't look at jealous and hating guys just because you do not want to use their code. Ubuntu is your distro and if Wayland does not fulfill your expectations and forces compromises just don't use it.
                  I use Ubuntu extensively personally and on work. I'm not jealous, I just care about it. I don't want it to just fail, I want it to fail and die fast. Why?
                  -Two competing new DS is going to make the situation even worse than just with Xorg
                  -They didn't engage with Wayland, and created the project secretly
                  -It's going to fragment GNU/Linux ecosystem on a base level (it's not like creating yet another desktop shell)
                  -They didn't create it for technical reasons. They want complete control and ownership of the copyright and the project.
