I just installed Ubuntu Quantal beta 2 (in a virtual machine), using their Unity user interface just long enough to reinstall the gnome classic UI (sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback), and trying to get to their GUI package manager, I type in "packages" (because they don't have a menu system to find programs anymore), and I get a screen full of CDs it wants me to buy.

I may actually need to stop using Ubuntu.

Opened a bug.

X has been the standard graphical interface for unix type operating systems since the 80s.

There have been many attempts at replacing it, because priorities have changed significantly. X was designed largely for network transparency (running a program on one computer while displaying it on another over a network). That has gotten in the way.

The replacement is Wayland.

(Or let me know if you have a better idea.)

Update: This is now marked high priority for the Karmic release, so I expect it to get fixed.
