    Also "caved under pressure" seems a bit dramatic -- from reading all the blogs it seems that :

    - the initial approach was reasonable and professional,
    - they discussed a bunch of options including collaboration,
    - in the end they decided not to collaborate but the patent holder agreed to exempt open source projects

    That seems like a best-case scenario -- something which should be appreciated and held up as a good example for others to follow.

    Just a thought...

      But Michael never over-dramatizes and exaggerates...

        I am pretty sure the kernel/wayland devs are so proud folks that they will make the binary drivers adapt to wayland, not the other way around.
