Ubuntu Unity moving from X.org to Wayland

This is a really risky move, as they risk alienating their Gnome supporters as well as all the buggyness that a shift from X (a stable platform) implies. However, they want more scaleability to the portable and phone markets and they can’t do it without building a new interface from the ground up like IOS and Android and WinPhone 7 are doing. You need integrated touch, 3D, etc. Very curious how this’ll pan out.
