    Me neither. Doesn't ring well to my ears.

    "I'm using Lomiri as a DE.": Just no, does not work at all for me.

    UBPorts project is a third party community that took over the sources of the Unity 8 project that was discarded by Canonical. It's fitting to give this project their own name as it is now their project.

    Also to distance it from all the hate that usually (and rightfully) surrounds Canonical stuff.
    Rightfully has nothing to do in your comment. Unless you specify it's just your opinion.

    Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    I'm sick of idiots pretending their opinion can be extrapolated to the entire universe. You think it is dogshit, it does absolutely not mean it is or ever will be. Please have some respect for others' opinions.

    Many people liked Unity and regret it, whether you want it or not. Period.

I want to use Wayland, but I want stability first and Wayland second.
    Curious, but what software/hardware are you running that wayland is unstable for you in gnome? I've been using it daily at home for a while now on my Ryzen/rx580 in ubuntu, and on a haswell laptop in 19.10 at work as well.

    The one thing that I'll fully admit needs work is remote desktop-style solutions and display casting over miracast for gnome in wayland. Not sure if that's on canonical or gnome for not having all of the stuff wired up and enabled.

    Canonical switched Ubuntu from gdm to lightdm, so if you installed Unity you were potentially getting that bug. So though technically the bug wasn't in Unity itself, it was the reason I stopped using Unity on 14.04.

    Not for me it wasn't. Even in 14.04, after about two days of continuous uptime the lock screen would stop responding to keyboard inputs. I would need to restart the display manager using one of the TTYs or from SSH, or restart the whole box.

    That happened to me on a Dell laptop and on an AMD desktop. With 15.10 it was finally stable on both.

    Actually Unity was rock solid from 14.04.
