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.

Aside from Luc, there's been more than 280 other comments within the Phoronix Forums about this surprise action of Intel stripping XMir support from their upstream Linux graphics driver.
