Broken, desperate need for rewrite, dinosaur, who cares.No.
Its not broken.
Its just in desperate need for rewrite, because original paradigm shifted - hence complete different design approach needed and contains deep legacy cruft, that is not needed anymore.
Nobody is mixing Ubuntu with Linux. Yes it's their decision and they are a corporation with business needs and will surely maintain Mir in the future. In that case perhaps the Wayland devs should abandon their project and help make Mir a good solution.No, don't mix Ubuntu with Linux. Also, it was their decision and they are free to decide. It is freedom.
What's your argument here? You feel the year of Linux desktop was 2003 and that means I should crawl out of my hole? I don't get it. I started using Linux around 1997-1998 with Redhat 5.x and Slackware 3.x. The year of Linux desktop has never come, crawl out of your hole.I started using Linux since complete migration from windows in 2003.
The year of Linux desktop for me was 2003.
Crawl out of your hole already.
Mostly they are. Ever worked at a software company?Linux developers & users are not always Nerds.
Yes you do fail, because I have no idea where you are going with this.Non-Linux developers & users are sometimes Nerds.
HAHAHAHAHAHA. Is my response to that. Try that going from Ubuntu, then to Fedora, then to SUSE will ya? Or even between versions of the same distro. Anyways, you quoted me and started talking about something completely different again.You can transfer your ~ with you. So its one-time life-time setup.
Functioning binary package management? Spending less time downloading??? What planet do you live on? Seriously... Using Linux since 2003 didn't do you much good. Binary packages are not installable across different versions of the same distribution and certainly not between different distributions. Ever heard of Linux dependancy hell? We've been living in it since the start. Anyone running a modern Linux distribution have hundreds of meg's worth of updates weekly if not daily, even if the updates concern parts of the system that you will never even touch.Due to the fact its Linux who invented functioning binary package management, it were Linux users that had to spend much less time getting and downloading ANYTHING
Don't confuse Linux (awesome kernel) with random open source hackers hobby projects. Yes it offers tons of desktop environments and configuration possibilities. Too bad all of them are crap! Microsoft and Apple have fulltime employees doing research on UI design and usability and it shows. Instead of imitating them, keeping the best stuff and improving on the not so good stuff, GNOME and KDE devs think they can do better. Wrong!Also, Linux offers by FAR MORE desktop environiments and configuration possiblities than windows and mac COMBINED.
Exactly, because their default environment works great and they can focus on using the computer for it's real purpose instead of wasting their time on broken desktop environments. Users and devs should be forced, only then would we get progress. Obviously that ain't gonna happen because most "Desktop" devs work in their spare time and work on what they feel like. And if they feel taskbar is not working, it's gone. If they feel like spatial window mode is great (remember that?) then that's what we get.Linux user is not forced any interface. Is it true for windows? Not. For Mac? IMHO, not. Never seen a Mac user using anything but default environiment.
Errrr. You're a double-turd then, how about that? Great discussing with you.Perhaps the turd is not Linux. Perhaps the turd is you?!
