    No one at Digia or at GTK team is planning to support MIR.
    They both support Windows, which is completely proprietary, patented and closed source, so I don't see why they would refuse patches for Mir.

    Both feature the web browser as the central ui and app runtime.

    That’s interesting, makes sense. So if we want Debian Sid to be up to date, we have to make sure all the software can read configuration files from about 2 or 3 years before… That’s a long time :-/.
    A better mechanism would be to have a sane incremental mechanism for updating data schemas. It's not magic, even the Rails guys figured it out. But I don't blame Xfce, like I said it's an understaffed project and it's actually a good desktop.

    It could also help to have a less selfish attitude.

    Well, that's true. For Ubuntu it's ±3.43%, and for Fedora it's ±3.41% at this point. Still nowhere a significant difference. Even if we take the total population into account, it would be ±3.41% and ±3.41% ±3.39% respectively at this point. The current difference is 0.34%...

    Suse 0.2 %
    Red Hat 0.4 %
    Fedora 0.3 %
    Debian 0.1 %
    Centos 0.3 %

    GNU Linux (Unknown or unspecified distribution) 9.7 %

    But but FaceBook has the most Likes....
    BTW I think you posted the wrong data above - your figures show Ubuntu being 8x more popular than Suse, 5x more popular than Fedora, 17x more popular than Debian, and 3x more popular than Android....

    Oh I did! And my predictions were spot on. The similarities with De Icazas' startup of GNOME and Canonical now are just stunning. Both use absolutely bogus arguments for doing what they are doing. All that ever will be achieved is fragmenting and slowdown of FLOSS progress. I do not mind forking og starting new projects, but when they are based on bogus arguments, then you just know that the motivation is not to support FLOSS.

    Utter bullshit! If someone uses a browser to do a websearch it is expected behavior that the search request is send to the net. If I do a search for a file on my machine it is not at all expected behavior that the search request is sent to Canonical/Amazon.

    Then you are using the wrong tool. The dash is meant to aggregate information based on your search query from various sources which includes online sources. Maybe you should understand the tool before using it or just use the file browser to search for files locally. The Dash is not only a local file browser. It does what is expected.
