    Phoronix: Canonical Has Yet To Land X.Org Server 1.16 For Ubuntu 14.10

    X.Org Server 1.16 didn't land in the Ubuntu "Utopic Unicorn" archive in time for this week's Ubuntu 14.10 Beta, but Canonical developers still seem to be working on testing and landing the updated xorg-server package for Ubuntu 14.10...

      Some unlucky incidents with release schedule and freezing stuff. I remember that Ubuntu many times had some buggy svn versions + patches of stuff when the final stable version was out before the Ubuntu release. It's really annoying to use some buggy beta version for 6 months waiting for the next Ubuntu version. I find rolling release distros much nicer.

          hell look at the proprietary drivers they ship with. they're like years old.

          you can't even get a 750 Ti running on Ubuntu out of the box

          but hey, i hear their phone OS is just wonderful

            I have to agree theyr drive logic makes no sense at all...
            they claim to not upgrade the gpu drivers beacuse of stabily but the thing is drivers are more stable with new releases.
            expecialy when playing games...

                  My Wlan Chip is now working with all supported stable kernel trees but not with the ubuntu kernel ....

                    depends on oibaf, it's compatible with the main repo which is what counts..

                      Looks like it is, it even solved a bug which I had with Steam: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=83234

                        hm

                        i hope they put x 1.16 out... if you have amd use the open driver.

                        ubuntu really miss something, some official ppa with stable mesa drivers, with 14.04 i have 10.1 or 10.1.3 (to old), rom intel installer 10.2.2 (not to old but not working with bumblebee)

                          Yes, it should be. I am just waiting to upload ddx to avoid breakage when xorg 1.16 will be pulled.

                            Ubuntu also disables OpenCL, which is enabled in debian:

                              Where do you get this information? Ubuntu 14.04 shipped with Nvidia 331.38, which came out in January, so was 3 months old at time of Ubuntu 14.04 release. And the opensource drivers match the kernel it ships with, which is only a month or two older than the release. Do you just make things up or do you actually believe this? Do you wear a tin foil hat by chance? Bake your own beard? Only drink out of a carefully hidden well in the woods? Avoid vaccines due to worry of mind control drugs?
