Add another to the list of projects that have wanted to but failed to replace X11. Why they wanted to replace it is not known to me, but maybe they weren't clear on that either.

They need a display server that allows integration with their mobile version of their OS, as the develop of their Ubuntu for phone and tablet is moving fast they will also make it work in the desktop version.
X11 and Waylan arent capable to do that and they have no control over the development of Waylan for what I understand.
I really wish them good luck.

Wayland was demonstrated running on top of Android last year already, so Wayland is able to achieve what Canonical wants.

And there you have found the real reason.

You have to deal with the fact, that the Linux ecosystem is now big enough to no longer be a collaborative effort. Now it's a competitive one. Companies will reinvent their own wheels and repeat the Unix wars of the 1980s. This is nothing new.

It seems that Canonical more or less stands alone with Mir now. After the call from the Kwin maintainer that he won't accept distribution specific patches in Kwin (read: unless more distributions than just Ubuntu are using it there will be no official Mir support for KDE) now the Gnome developers want to speed up there Wayland support. They want to have partial Wayland support in Gnome 3.10 and complete Wayland support in Gnome 3.12, so that we can see in spring 2014 a Gnome that is fully running on top of Wayland.
