    Phoronix - 99% links to itself.

    Anyone else notice Kristian is actually using Wayland to give the presentation?

    More than that... I love his "first to publicly mention the project" line. Really - the project was a complete secret before Phoronix discovered it, never spoken of by the developers?

    I'll be honest with you, I've used Linux for years, and I never heard of Wayland until it was mentioned on Phoronix. In fact, there have been many interesting projects, Linux news and more that I first heard about on Phoronix (ie. the Kernel power bugs, etc). I don't have time to trawl through hundreds of private e-mail lists and read thousands of messages. I'm grateful that Phoronix does the dirty work for me, and lets me just read the interesting bits.

    @ asdx. if you relax for a minute you'll see that I was not spreading FUD against linux. i was pointing out the embarrassing detail that at these presentations many of the people run the demo in a vm on mac. like the brtfs video. if you want to promote a product you don't run it in a vm on your "enemy's" OS.

    That "Apple has released a nice product which is used by a large number of people in the linux community" is not embarrassing for linux developers. Having a linux supporter feel the need to publicly "pooh-pooh" a linux developer for using a Macbook to give a presentation... That's embarrassing.

    It's not about beating Apple/MSFT. It's about delivering something special to the world. We've got phones, network equipment, telecom equipment, stock markets, automated factories, scientific establishments, and a tremendous number of enterprises and productivity users. The world runs linux, and they don't even know it.
