    Phoronix: X.Org Was Not Accepted To GSoC 2012

    Well, here's a surprise, Google has decided to not accept the X.Org Foundation into participating in this year's Google Summer of Code. Any students interested in contributing to X.Org / Mesa / Wayland over the summer will not be part of Google's annual arrangement...

    So they accepted Haiku (full respect to the project but i can't find a real utility) and rejected Wayland??

          Maybe they will base the next version of Android on haiku? Bunch of hypocrites.

            I see where they're coming from, X projects haven't had a great success rate in the previous years.

              How do they know yet? As I understand it the full list will be 180, and when I check now the list only has 149 so far. Yesterday when I checked it went from 69 to 80 something.

                Why? Is it because they give away a lot of money and support for this project which gives them little direct benefit other that some recruitment propaganda, and that this year they decided to support a few less projects than last year?

                    Just because they accepted something like haiku and rejected very important part of Linux.

                      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.
