Shuttleworth On Mir: "A Fantastic Piece of Engineering"
Phoronix: Shuttleworth On Mir: "A Fantastic Piece of Engineering"
Mark Shuttleworth has written a third blog post today. After he started blogging to come to his defense on Ubuntu, he's written a third post that largely is defending Canonical's position on developing the Mir Display Server and the feelings right now by derivatives like Kubuntu and Xubuntu...
"the space tourist goes on to say"
Really? It sounds to me like someone is angry.. There are many space tourists, this should read "the founder of Ubuntu, a widely popular Linux distro, goes on to say." That is, if we need superfluous descriptors.
Samsung is launching Tizen phones this year which run wayland. Right?
Yes should be this year, I think they aim for wayland if they aren't there already, and use the EFL libraries (which have been ported to wayland)

Hahaha. Come on. Admit it, you want it to die. And so do I.
BTW. Loved the photo and description. "Will Mir hold better?"
So Martin Gräßlin thinks he owns Kubuntu or KDE based Ubuntu. Is this a case of tall poppy-syndrome of people not liking Mark's success?
Ubuntu is kicking butt. Just accept it, it's quality and vision that others are lacking.
He "owns" kwin though, he's the main kwin developer for upstream KDE. kubuntu generally doesn't do any development of KDE itself afiak, so if he says kwin won't support mir I'd say thats accurate, since he's one of the people actually coding kwin.

Wake up and smell the flowers(roses) is an appropriate saying.
