I know that Ubuntu is planning to use it in 11.10, and Fedora has announced 'eventual' migration, but I'm curious if there is something using it already that I could load in a VM to help with compatibility testing.

You mean "Wayland"? –  Zaur Nasibov May 19 '11 at 18:55
Yes--thanks Zuar =) –  Bryan Agee May 19 '11 at 19:05
UPDATE: So it seems that there are some demos available in 12.04, but we're still a ways off from having this in Ubuntu. –  Bryan Agee Mar 27 '12 at 19:32

It would seem that you can use a... "experimental" version with Arch Linux.

I liked Arch when I used it a long time ago; it looks like it's fairly half-baked in it's implementation right now too though. Thanks for the suggestion. –  Bryan Agee May 19 '11 at 19:08
@Byran everything is going to be half baked right now, because wayland itself is still only half baked. –  xenoterracide May 20 '11 at 1:17

RebeccaBlackOS does that. As well-finished as a Rebecca Black video, don't expect miracles with it.

This is now my new favorite Friday distro. –  Brad F Jacobs May 23 '13 at 19:10

Maui is a totaly new distro that build its visualisation over Wayland. http://www.maui-project.org/

It's a work-in-progress project but its promising.
