    Phoronix: Mir's Demo Shell Is Working On Its Own Renderer

    The latest work out of Canonical's Mir team for the Ubuntu display server is beginning to form its own custom renderer fore its demo-shell...

    So much time wasted that they could have used to improve their run-of-the-mill distro...

      But for now, it just sets a custom background colour for demo-shell (grey).
      Ooh, exciting new feature!

        I don't understand that why they still want to continue development of MIR. What do they lose if they contribute the Wayland project?

                Mir's demo-shell is used for showing off the possibilities of this Wayland competitor and experimenting with Mir code.
                It was obvious a while ago that this isn't a "Wayland Competitor". They two display servers have completely different goals, even if they are very alike in how they go about achieving those goals.

                Wayland has nothing to fear from Mir, and similarly we should stop banging on Canonical's door about developing Mir. If they want to do it, let them... just don't expect a lot of software to run on Ubuntu "natively" for a while ^.^

                  Wayland is a protocol, anybody can implement a wayland compositor using any license they want.

                  Weston, the reference composer is MIT licensed.

                  What on Earth are you talking about?
