So if Ubuntu drops X in favor of this 'Wayland' thingume, I suppose they will essentially port all the software the needs X to Wayland? All the major software from GNOME to Firefox, is only built for X. Are the team from Ubuntu simply going to do all this by themselves or what?
I realize that X has become perhaps more complex, but the dilemma here is that every single major piece of software is built for X, so what kind of DE/WM will run under 'Wayland'? Will the 'devs' at Ubuntu come up with their own WM/DE from scratch?
I guess the big question is this: Is moving away from X practical?
