Using phone to have a presentation - again runs to the same issue: if the presentation place already has to have a keyboard, mouse, monitor - why not also have the CPU? With miniature desktop kits and all-in-ones becoming more prominent, it's becoming easier to put the CPU in the monitor, keyboard or heck, why not the mouse. If the CPU can fit in a phone, it can fit into any of those. And you'd still have the option to plug in your phone and remote to it from the desktop.
Your arguments are good if you're arguing for having good, open remote/sync protocols between the desktop and phone, but having the phone act as the desktop CPU itself (which was the original argument) still makes no sense.
Most of what I wanted to say GreatEmerald already did for me however I wish you Ubuntu trolls luck, it's going to be an uphill battle I think.
I was saying that the KWin project should not have discounted acceptance of any Mir patches right from the get go without reviewing any code.
Furthermore, the KWin guys wouldn't be forced to carry buggy patches if it ever came to that, they could easily rip the Mir specific code out if it ever came to that.
So those issues you raised weren't really issues in the first place.
Is it okay for you to take the other side and not be called a hypocrite?
Fact is that NVidia & Co. make their money within the Linux ecosystem under RHEL and they support Linux mainly for GPGPU computing (CUDA/OpenCL). NVidia supported Ubuntu specifically once but hasn't updated its support for anything newer than 10.04: https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-downloads
But that is no reason for the mudslinging that especially the KDE site is running since then. While everyone pretends that it could have been the perfect cooperation with ubuntu/Canonical and the Wayland site the time after the MIR announcement (again: the bad wiki site was a big mistake) showed, that there was alot of tension behind the scenes.
But back to the FUD: The KWIN developer told FUD about ubuntu several times himselv on big interviews and even wanted to send a adhortatory letter because Shuttleworth said in his blog he has " absolutely no doubt that Kwin will work just fine on top of Mir."
In the ML-thread i see again ubuntu and canonical trying to give a hand to the KDE site and the KDE site again tries to put unity and ubuntu/canonical into a bad light (https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ub...ne/037277.html).
i do think not accepting distro-specific-patches is a valid reason(, even i think its just a fake-reason just to not support MIR). But working together with ubuntu/canonical to keep kubuntu alive should be on KDE's agenda, too.
Well, my post disappeared again. If I'm being moderated, please PM me and delete this post as well, I'd like to know to stop bothering in trying to explain AGAIN what I already said like four times.
If not, I wonder what is going on.
working together with NVIDIA towards a more unified driver model sitting on top of EGL.
Mr. Phoronix speculated about NVidia eventually supportin Wayland, but also linked that to Ubuntu adoption.
I wonder how you came to such a twisted view.
Afaik Mir needs EGL and Wayland is also capable of utilizing it.
