[Ubuntu-PH] Ubuntu ditches X for Wayland..

I agree.

Most users will only be using the upper graphical layer anyway (eg. mouse
clicking) so I don't see any huge hindrance for the common user regarding
the Wayland switch.

I expect the graphics layer to be much faster than it currently is,
considering that compositor "dialogue" will be much more direct than what's
happening currently with X.

Again, exciting :). I'm looking forward to this.
