Ubuntu Delays Wayland Plans, System Compositor 319

An anonymous reader writes "The Wayland-usage in Ubuntu 12.10 via setting it up as a system video compositor has been delayed to at least Ubuntu 13.04. Developers made progress on running Ubuntu on Wayland (there are experimental packages available), but they need more time to complete their work and ready Wayland. For those wanting to try out Wayland on Linux, there is a specialty Wayland LiveCD."

    Every time I see a screenshot of Wayland, I see rotated windows. Is that its only feature?

    Things will get better once the Yutani Corporation enters the picture.

    Wayland was also home to the insane clone of the Jedi Master Joruus C'Baoth.

    Just as an FYI, the Jedi master was Jorus C'Baoth. If memory serves, he was lost when his extragalactic exploration ship exploded.

    His insane clone was named Joruus C'Baoth. It may be that the insane clone had an insane clone, but in that case the apparent naming convention would suggest that the clone's name would be Joruuus.

    Just some memory flotsam from the late 90's that washed ashore when I saw your post...

    The usual Ubuntu practice is to jam incomplete, beta quality changes (grub2, upstart, plymouth, unity, etc.) into release and fix them them in subsequent releases.

    Usually desktop Linux distros are so buggy that they would count as alpha quality by commercial software standards. In that bunch Ubuntu+Unity is actually quite solid.

APL hackers do it in the quad.
