    Sooo, Michael Larabel is having a butthurt because Canonical is managing Ubuntu in its own way? Pretty much looks like he's on Red Hat's payroll along other trolls like Poettering.

    if the above reason you mentioned would be alone then i would like to ask you:
    why should they? where is written that they or anybody else has an obigation to talk to the devs of an not even yet used project?
    who has the right to demand such nonsense? you?
    Way to fail to read my post beyond the first sentence. I explicitly pointed out that Canonical FUDed about Wayland, however if it had been just FUDing after failing to work with wayland with them starting up Mir that would have been one thing, there would have still been outrage but it would have been muted compared to this as canonical's actions would have been at least somewhat understandable. That they didn't even try and then decided to FUD about wayland and make their own display server that's why there's the extreme outrage, that is what I was getting at.

    There are differences between those cases though. Lennart may be a bit abrasive sometimes, but when he started systemd, he did so from a position of knowing what he was talking about, having done his research on the strengths and weaknesses of existing systems, including Upstart. His reasons are all well documented, and while people might not agree with all of it, the reasoning is generally sound.

    In contrast, look at the Mir developers. They've started their project working in isolation from other experts who might give useful feedback, justified their project's existence on the basis of supposed flaws in Wayland, and then been forced to back down and admit they have no idea what they're talking about.

    Nonsense. In the mind of the consumer, "what's Linux?", and "what's Ubuntu?". Seriously, the average computer user still has no idea what either of them are...

    How is the CLA less bad than the permissive licenses? The CLA gives Canonical the right to switch away from GPL to their own proprietary license at a moments notice since they own all the copyright.

    Last time i checked, everybody is entitled to develop their own opensource solution. As for kwin, i don't think canocical really cares at all if their patches don't make it mainstream.

    Cheers, whiners trolls!
