+Mark Shuttleworth, it would be rather helpful, if you'd elaborate on this a bit more -- because I'm sure many people would find that a contentious issue:

"Mir’s reason for existence is that I see Wayland ending up with the same set of problems that X had – it promises that everyone can get what they want, which just leaves everyone slightly incompatible with everyone else."

While we're at it, another separate statement of yours draws (I'd even say grabs) attention:

"In addition, I am concerned that the people funding Mir Wayland have a very specific agenda and no intention of letting Canonical succeed if they can help it." (correction mine)

People are throwing FUD at Canonical.  Now, it appears, you throw FUD at Intel?  What is this, corporate politics?  Why not fight them in the open?  Call Intel out on their grip on Wayland, if there is such a thing, as you seem to imply?
