why didn't Wayland people adopt SurfaceFlinger?
That's a good point. To be honest, I'm not that familiar with SurfaceFlinger. To (partly) answer your question: two wrongs don't make a right. Perhaps Canonical/Ubuntu should adopt and extend SurfaceFlinger instead of rolling their own display server?
On a related note, I'm starting to think that the most effective method to make Linux more relevant in the desktop space (and at the same time get a relatively sane OS stack: kernel, graphics, sound, input, UI) is to make Android self-hosting.
