    Phoronix: Mir 0.1.1 Has Arrived, But Light On Features

    It's been a while since last having any major Mir Display Server news to talk about. The central Mir Bazaar repository for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS developments has been silent lately, but finally a new Mir back was merged back in that provides v0.1.1...

      As they started on mobile with only fullscreen surfaces this haven't been a necessary
      feature until now when the tablet shall be focused on.

        Gotta love Canoncal's double speak, they make Unity to disunite FOSS desktop into competing camps, then they make Mir ("peace" in Russian) to declare a war on Wayland.

          Mir is lightweight. Great success!

            Light on features don't imply lightweight to operate.

            It depends on the given implementation.

              It's always funny when someone is completely oblivious to sarcasm.

                  Let's cross our fingers and pray that Canonical intends to switch.

                    The 0.1.1.1 version will be even more "mediocre"

But then again, FOSS people always seem hellbent on creating and destroying so they are forever at 1%. Anything more and they equate it with selling out....
                        Classic BO$$. Waiting to see how many people will fall for his trolling again. I put the over/under at 3.

                          Nonsense. Application developers code against frameworks like GTK, Qt, EFL. They couldn't care less which display server is in use. You as a self proclaimed expert should know that, if you really don't then this post shows nothing but you not knowing what you are talking about.

                            Seeing as how Canonical is writing their apps in Qt, I think it's pretty safe to assume they will.

                            Even if it means Ubuntu will come with a version of Qt they've patched to run on Mir.

At this point the tehnical merits of Wayland and Mir don't even count. Mir is on Ubuntu which is the most popular so people need to support it. It's that simple. Not supporting it means suicide. If everybody commits suicide then Ubuntu dies also. Then Linux dies.
                              LOL.

                              Yeah, no trolling there. You're all just plain hard facts with no embellishment at all.
