    Personally I am quite shocked with this move. Moving from X.org to anything else is a HUGE step. Not sure which way it will go. Though the ability to run existing X.org programs is a plus however nothing is can be said about the graphics driver support. (oh the horror!!!)
    I wonder what's next, Ubuntu moving away from Linux kernel? ;)
