    It's my opinion, dude, chill. If you have knowledge, why not share?

      Because, dude, the reason isn't public information.

      In the future, express your opinions as if they were actually opinions, and not as if you're stating a fact.

          Hm, sorry. I understand. I'm not sure if you're trying to troll or if you messed up quoting me.

            It wasnt a mistake, nor too much of a troll.

            You told someone to stop stating opinions and use facts.

            However, you then said your 'facts' are not public information, and gave no reason to disprove his, other than what you say.

            I also say that X.Org has received over $1mil private funding for development, and thats why Google didnt give them any GSOC places.

              The mistake was that Wayland was submitted together with Xorg (Mesa is still OK IMHO). As it currently stands, the latter one will be slowly phased out and more interesting development will be in Wayland in next few years (it will still take time before it can be a ready to replace Xorg with the "glitch-free" layer for X apps).
              Perhaps also previous attempts in GSOC didn't work well with these projects. Probably it is too hard for students, because of complexity and requiring a lot of heavy lifting and dealing with a lot of the old cruft.

                I asked someone who knows, and he explained why we weren't accepted. It doesn't matter to me whether you believe me or not.

                  What a shame

                  What a shame!

                  I would really like to have seen X approved.
                  - We need XRandR 1.4.
                  - There is probably old code to be cleaned up, removed, deprecated.
                  - More work towards multi-GPU.
                  - Perhaps multi-touch needs maturing.
                  - Some of the features/merits of Wayland could be implemented in X.
                  - Work on X on Wayland and Wayland on X.

                      Haha sorry, fair enough

                      I have no reason to not believe you either.
