    Red Hat seems to be doing just fine.

    Don't read it.

    I'd recommend to post your distrubution you use in your signature and tell again that different aproaches are wasted resources. I am pretty sure that there is more but ONE distribution. So it would seem those haters are not more than people agreeing there has to be one god but in the end forking for behavioural stuff. (Like one Display Server but still several DEs)
    by the way Martin Luther didnt want to fork the church. And as far as i know he didnt.
    Besides. Just think what the Linux Ecosystem would be like if Microsoft developers would all start joining linux-distributions. Do you write them hatemails too? ... for not supporting the right OS? F***ing overconfidence, eh?
    I don't give a flying furry about Martin Luther, churches can all burn for all I care. Anyway, it's apples and oranges. Several dozen DE's doesn't matter, there can be a 100 DE's, there can be a 1000 distros, and it doesn't matter because you can still run the same software in all of them. What real fragmentation is, that we'll end up getting A) software that runs on Ubuntu, and B) software that runs on Everything Else.

    And as said we will see if its that bad. Like unity wasnt loved at the beginning.
    And as a company you need to tell investors that you have some kind of thing of your own that no one can change without your permission. they HAVE to do it. And stop being pissed off because others dont work the way you want.
    They don't have to do it. Plenty of businesses make good money on open source software. Red Hat, for one.

    thats just so illeducated, self-righteous and intolerant! Pay them and then you'll get to judge their work and decisions.
    Ok, I just sent 0.000001 as a donation to Canonical. Now I get to judge their work and decisions. Problem?

    See, it doesn't work that way. We get to criticize the actions of others when those actions can have potentially harmful effects on other people. That's something guaranteed by freedom of speech, which is a fundamental human right. I'm of the opinion that Canonical's actions (regarding Mir) are harmful to the rest of the desktop Linux ecosystem, and I have the right to express that opinion and explain why I think that way. I don't have to pay Canonical to be allowed to criticize them.

    and when someone writes it "SEEMS" then because the thing he is gonna say may not be 100% correct and WILL BARE some subjective portion. there really is no need to put him down because he doesnt have the time and maybe technical understanding to read the mailing lists himself. You ready newspapers dont you? But you probably dont read them all, compare and ask victims and witnesses for first hand information (though asking people is hardly the most objective thing in the world...)
    And it is true, that there hasnt been much traffic on Phoronix over wayland just before Mir emerged.
    Being ignorant of the facts is one thing, but if you are then you shouldn't get pissed when someone educates you of those facts. And traffic on phoronix is not an indicator of actual development speed. Of course there's traffic about Mir/Wayland, it's a controversy. Controversies attract spectators.

    first of all "thank you" to Sam Spilsbury.

    steam already uses libsdl2 but sadly it use some old gnome stuff like gdkpixbuff.

    Staggering amounts of stupidity shown by Ubuntu Fanboys on this thread. Yeah let's compare different display servers to having multiple e-mail clients.
    OUCH!

    Reminder: The Mir hate train was kickstarted by the "wayland sucks" document they pretty much attached to their announcement. That was a technical argument that wayland sucked and mir was better, and it turned out to just be a battery of misunderstandings by Canonical people on how Wayland works or what Wayland is. If they were afraid as you suggest, this wouldn't have happened at all.
