Well it seems that when the power of bitchyness is greater than the power of collaboration to get things done. It really feels like a reactionary move done almost as much out of spite than for technical reasons. Seriously it took canonical saying "your solution isn't good enough, we're rolling our own" for gnome to get off it's arse and actually get wayland support under way. How long would it have taken if canonical had instead depended on gnome doing it in their own time? Certainly too long to be of use for a mobile platform that's launching in October. And from what i've seen, canonical's contributions would be turned down only for the equivalent functionality to be re-implemented in an incompatible way about 2 years after they'd be of use to anyone (notifications anyone?)
No announcement yet.
