In the flurry of polarized discussions that have emerged since yesterday's Ubuntu Mir announcement, some have speculated that Valve's interactions with Ubuntu may have had a hand in them developing their own display server. This is most likely not the case and the first-generation Linux-based Steam Box from Valve will almost surely be running an X.Org Server.

That's not unexpected, especially considering alternatives to X like Wayland still have a ways to go before they become standard.

And making their own display server is a lot of work, a lot.

I think it would be interesting if they went with Wayland. It really needs a good push right now and has great potential.

Shows how much of a linux noob I am, I thought the only display server was X.org, then I googled it.
