          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.

                The fact is Wayland has schedule and adoption problems. if they piggy backed on Mir, both projects can benefit, even though the project names may not be exclusive. There's no shame in making something great if it means merging talented people's works.

                Many people are hitting on Canonical simply due to the Tall Poppy Syndrome.

                When reading the comments from the Wayland team on Mir, you can see they aren't stupid people and yes anger may have got them by surprise but I think they may see Mir as their opportunity too, to redeem Wayland, be that in a merge or happy for the both projects to thrive and use each others ideas.

                  Mark Shuttleworth is losing credibility because he talks shit, and will say anything to give a positive spin to Ubuntu.

                  When Wayland was announced, Shuttleworth said Ubuntu was backing it, but they never contributed anything to it!

                  Now, he says the competition is talking FUD.
                  It was the Mir camp that was talking FUD and saying Wayland had a broken insecure input model reminiscent that of the one in X, and they were wrong about it and later admitted it.
                  They were the ones that said Wayland could not do server-side allocations, and they were wrong about it.

                  Now Shuttleworth say Wayland isn't as open as they want you to believe. Wayland has been open since day one!
                  Mir on the other hand was secretly developed behind locked doors for 6 months before it was announced, and is not very open since it requires contributors to sign a Contributor License Agreement.

                  Mark Shuttleworth, stop lying, stop spreading FUD, and stop accusing others of spreading FUD!

                  Mir was created out of NIH, failure to properly research Wayland, and misconceptions and broken assumptions about Wayland.

                    Mark Shuttleworth:
                    Contrary to competitor FUD, from people who are not working as openly as they would have you believe
                    Canonical didn't even try to participate in the development of Wayland and the fact that he's only spreading FUD about Wayland (e.g. "not working as openly") without giving a single example, I conclude that Mark Shuttleworth is full of shit, excuse me my French.

                      Usually names have to be catchy or easy to remember and recall, but the theme behind yMir is cool. Giants and ice... yeah.

                        i am glad that there will be universal display server, future needs to be universal from pc-s, phones, tablets to flight navigation ui for example.

                          If CLA wasnt the real issue you could go ahead and convince Shark Muddleworth to do away with it. Good Luck!

                            Tall Poppy Syndrome.

                            You want to cut him down as you're uneasy about the progress of Canoncial or you secretly want to bolster your own project with the downfall of others.

                            Cut all this bickering. It's ridiculous.

                              "Contrary to competitor FUD, from people who are not working as openly as they would have you believe, Mir is more likely to enable high-quality graphics for ALL flavours of Ubuntu"

                              Since there is only one competitor, I'll assume he's talking about Wayland. In a nutshell, Mark claims:
                              -Mir is developed more openly that Wayland (ROFL)
                              -It's going to be faster and better
                              -It'll be able to run KDE, Gnome and XFCE. (Kubuntu, Ubuntu gnome remix, Xubuntu)

                              When they admit they've created Mir for copyright and control. I'll shut up.
