    Wouldn't it be good if the best of Wayland was copied over to Mir project by the Wayland team. Both teams getting together to make the best display server. Even if they choose to rename the project for a good gesture. eg: 'Waymir'...

    "Copied over" as giving away free software hackers copyright? FUCK NO.

    Wouldn't it have been nice if the Mir developers tried to do exactly what you're suggesting (only to the Wayland project, which was and is far ahead) 9 months ago when Mir was secretly started?


    That said, Mark's calling Mir protesters arguments "FUD" aside (even though it's outrageous & hypocritical), if his other statements about working with Nvidia and AMD to provide quality proprietary drivers for both Mir and Wayland holds any truth (something we can't be entirely sure about these days), then the situation isn't all that bad, and likely will be a benefit to Wayland systems in the future (which will likely be far ahead of Mir for quite a while).
