Ubuntu Wants More Games Running On OpenGL ES
Phoronix: Ubuntu Wants More Games Running On OpenGL ES
Now that Ubuntu's been ported to the Google Nexus 7 and there's other interesting Ubuntu work going into the tablet/mobile-space, developers want more open-source games ported to using OpenGL ES rather than the full OpenGL stack...
Am I the only one seeing a lot of talk from the Ubuntu camp but very little action over all of this?
Now, raising an issue can be valuable in of itself, but Ubuntu always seems to talk a lot and yet accomplish very little on it's own.
You're wrong, they planned to use wayland as a system compositor for 12.10 and did so, their phone/tablet/kitchen sink versions are a hit, the desktop users are all using their cloud-related (amazon sponsored) crap err technology, compiz is the fastest and bug-free compositor around etc etc

They did employ the lead (and only) Compiz developer though. Could you list some projects that they have actually done some real contributions to?
