Luc Verhaegen, the former RadeonHD
graphics driver developer at SUSE and now working on the Lima project
for reverse-engineering ARM Mali graphics, has shared his thoughts on the recent developments surrounding Intel backing out their XMir driver support.
Phoronix was the first news source to report last week of Intel dropping XMir support from their driver
with some neutral comments made by management at the company. Luc is rather taken by Intel's actions and his latest blog post writes about reinvention galore, Mir versus Wayland competition, software fascism, and the Android-ization of Linux.
