    That would be a tall order, but anything's possible.... first I hear of that Nokia/Android work .

      1. The goal is to create a FOSS OS. Not just an OS derived from FOSS elements. We already have two very functional OSes. (And yes I use Windows 8 and Server 2012 at home and would take a bullet for them, especially the later.)
      2. There is already "strong leadership" in the FOSS world. Both Red Hat and Attachmate are well based corporations.
      3. The crucial difference is not that we don't have strong leadership, but that only Canonical tries to make a distro with good usability for desktop users. Both RHEL and SLES are abortions, when it comes to polish and user friendliness. If anything, ironically, Debian, the grandpa distro, is light years more user friendly than RHEL. It actually has MP3 support out of the box, an ample repo, and a package management system that works well.
      What features does apt/deb have that yum/rpm is missing?

          Ballmer has more than that in the little safe tucked in the wall of his corner office.

            Wait...that wouldn't happen to be a man-sized case would it?

              If you think the Wayland threads aren't getting trolled, you aren't looking.

              It doesn't help when a thread starts out with a post like this:

              The speed at which Canonical is progressing in their quest for domination shows us what we already know but most won't admit: they are the de facto FOSS leaders. Apple derived Mac OS X from BSD, Ubuntu is derived from Linux. This is how it should be: a corporation takes what the open source guys do and creates a true OS under a strong leadership. That is what is missing in the Linux community. Luckily for the consumers there is Shuttleworth that will do what Jobs did with BSD, transform it into a real OS, not a kiddie joke. And just as Apple did a lot of things differently from BSD, so will Ubuntu diverge from Linux. It takes a real focus on the consumers to create an alternative to Windows. Good times ahead: Microsoft, Apple and Canonical, the new holy trinity.

                Don't get any ideas now.

                    I dislike that Mir exists. However, I am happy that it probably will work nicely if you use Ubuntu. E.g. performance seems to be mostly ok now, same for glitches. Still don't think it is useful with XMir, only 14.10 is noteworthy with real Mir. Anyway, still happy that'll work out for Ubuntu users.

                      In order to try to be on par and compete with Mir wiki's initial FUD, since Canonical community show us the troll way.

                        Why on earth do you say this? The Wayland threads absolutely get trolled, and usually by the same people. Bo$$ and friends don't pay any attention to what the thread is actually about... they just see keywords like Wayland, Mir, or Canonical, and start spewing their usual noise. And likewise the pro-Wayland trolls spout crap over both Wayland and Mir threads equally...
