    I don't see it that way.. .chrome devs have an outside perspective and to them Wayland / Mir may just be a political *situation* to tame rather than take sides in for productivity's sake,.

      Oh crap, now they're gonna use that as a new argument to drop Firefox and adopt Chromium as default. I hope someone's working on porting Firefox too.

      let other do the heavy tasks and then port it! and it works just compare between the two presentation
      You're in the Phoronix Forums, remember? If Canonical writes something different we are supposed to say "Again this devilish company and its CLAed, NIH syndrome fragmenting Linux and refusing to work with the community", if Canonical adopts a community project or uses someone else's code instead of reinventing the wheel it's "All these lazy fucks do is steal other people's hard work".

        I can't be the only one thinking it.
        Well, they're supposed to be working on avoiding this:

          I have quite serious suspicion, that this is happening because Pavel Popov has joined ranks of what he has tried to clone.

          Next headline will be - Ubuntu renames itself into Bolgenbuntu and Canonical becomes Poposoft.

          Viva BolgenOS!

            Actually, XBMC was the first.

              Yeah right, like the FSF doesn't require any CLA/CAA on any of its projects.

                  I hope in the quick porting to wayland graphic server of all linux operating systems.

                    DRM? (as in restrictions manglement) possibly. I found a possibly outdated spec page on Ubuntu's site http://status.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-s/gr...pic-s-mir.html and it mentions 'DRM (rights managment)' as a todo ~75%. Now keep in mind it could be an outdated page, it hasn't been touched since May 2013...
                    Today marks 1 year since they announced the thing BTW.

                      I know this is blasphemy on this site - but I can't wait to see Mir in its full glory.

                      That video demonstration looked so smooth.

                      This anticipation feels like the late 90's again - when I would wait for Linux Forum magazine to ship from the UK with its CD packed with new software to try for the first time.

                          The wayland video showed it not being fullscreened, and opening multiple windows. This was just exercising scrolling and the browser's webgl implementation. I'd have love to have seen how the windowing worked (considering that is one of the two areas that this is addressing).

                              This presentation is filmed with an external camera, the wayland/weston one is using the screen recorder implemented in weston if i'm not mistaken.

                              See Thiago Vignattis comment " UI smoothness is really tricky when video casting cause the CPU is already exhausted due the video capture. So I agree that things are not smooth on this video but it is when in normal usage "
