Besides half of the arguments are invalid in this presentation and I am
wondering what kind of system this guy is running to have such bad
experience. While technically it is correct and what they did deserves
respect, it is a bit disproportionate. I wouldn't say it's sooo bad as
pictured in the presentation.
BTW I heard about Wayland few years ago when there was kind of hype in the
community, but not tracked it further.

I am amazed in what is going on with KDE, X and many other projects, where
people, who thing they know and can better are trying to live out their
view of the world. At the end nothing works. At least Gnome did this like
about 15 years ago, so that even if stupid, it is one of the lightest and
easiest environments.

I am sure some of those people and projects will fail and some of them will
bring it to a successfull end. Lets wait and see where it will go.
I started using TDE exactly because I do not like replacing something ugly
and working for something cool and nice but not working. My choice is to
have a stable and working system nothing more and nothing less. 
When Wayland grows up, I don't mind giving it a chance. I'm sure the people
who are behind know what they are doing and why, so it will be a matter of
time and the TDE philosophy is not to rush for new stuff.
In fact it is pretty hard to keep the project up to date
