Just like _this_ year is the year of the Linux desktop? And then, when
the market share inevitably fails to materialize, they will claim they
meant next year.

In any case, I believe the idea behind Wayland to be sound, just the
current implementation is not. They just have "a few issues to work
out", and have been doing that for years now. But on the other hand, I
had tried switching to Linux a few times before I actually could stay on
it (even the prettiest pictures cannot make up for lacking hardware
support, and I had problems with Wifi for the longest time), and that
was at some time during the 2.6 line. So maybe Wayland needs another
decade to ripen and mature.
