Parent article: LCA: The ways of Wayland
Let me paraphrase this sentence: Linux is doing just fine pretty much everywhere except where it uses X.Org.
Although X is somewhat old and crufty, I don't believe it's the reason Linux has very little desktop penetration. I don't think Wayland will cause a huge spike in desktop penetration. On the other side, my N900 phone runs X and it's a great little mobile device... just as good as any Android phone.
"Use of X" and "success of Linux" are orthogonal.
