Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

Now that Ubuntu/Canonical is building their own display server what will happen with wayland and Linux as a whole. With all this "disruption" around what will other distro's (fedora, opensuse, mint, arch etc.) do: because clearly X will have to be replaced sooner or later.

Why should the development of Mir for Ubuntu affect other distributions? such as Fedora or OpenSuSe or Arch. If anything it would be a concern for Ubuntu based distributions, if anything. Let alone affect "Linux as a whole". Android already uses another Display server if you didn't know and as far as I can see Android is using Linux. –  Uri Herrera Mar 5 '13 at 22:20
