    Phoronix: Ubuntu Still Aims For Wayland System Compositor

    While there's still more than one month until the Ubuntu 12.10 feature freeze, Canonical/Ubuntu developers continue to work towards their concept of having Wayland serve as a system compositor for this next Ubuntu Linux release due out in October, but will they make it?..

    I have that issue using intel. Its only an issue in ubuntu too, fedora's boot looks great the whole way through.

    Back on topic...

    I think Wayland cannot come early enough, but at the same time, nothing is ready. Canonical doesn't even work on Wayland, so how can they target it at all? They're just waiting for everything to be magically handed to them based on their deadlines? LOL!

    This a case of Canonical-thinks-the-Linux-world-revolves-around-them, and I'm unamused. Surely the mass exodus to Mint hasn't gone completely unnoticed... and I'd think the solution isn't to BREAK EVERYTHING, but start giving your userbase what they want.

    The last 8 years has seen alot of "Okay, we've got a successful project. Now lets ignore our userbase and go off and do our own thing, regardless of community feedback." AmaroK, Gnome, KDE, Ubuntu.... the tablets all these distros think they MUST support but don't actually run on? The new audio backends that woo developers over somehow but don't actually support anything? The trashing of existing features that users love? Well, why not take the next step and throw EVERYTHING THAT WORKS into the garbage before its all ready. Sounds exactly like what Canonical would do next, based on their track record...

    Don't be alarmed. Every one of his posts are like that. He just does a cut and paste.

    What's weird is that it wasn't nearly as noticeable in 11.04.

    Sure it may be a different bug with the same symptoms.

    After bios, black screen for 5s.
    Plymouth splash shows itself for 0.7s.
    LightDM login screen.

    I'm no UI designer, but something about that black/plymouth time ratio seems off
    Isn't that an issue with the nvidia binary blob?
