Building & Running The Ubuntu Mir Display Server
Phoronix: Building & Running The Ubuntu Mir Display Server
The latest coverage of today's surprise announcement of Canonical developing Mir, their own display server for Ubuntu, is information on building and running the Mir display server with the code they open-sourced today. There's also a Phoronix video showcasing the (sad) state of the Mir client demo...
This is just embarrassing to watch.
I don't think we are supposed to watch it and/or comment it.
this is canonical's property.
all jokes aside, the joke that has been going for years that ubuntu is not linux but windows due to the easy way of doing things, now I realize that linux and ubuntu are 2 separate meanings. I don't know why those antics are happening with the display servers, but I know that we were eating from the same soup and now we are spooning each others' eyes.
I just don't get it. How did with people no experience in this stuff make their own display server? Is it a fork of Android's SurfaceFlinger has orginally rumored?
Based on this I would say they have not built much of anything.
