    Your friend is correct, I was wrong. If you statically link then you have to "also provide your application in an object (not necessarily source) format, so that a user has the opportunity to modify...

    So let me get this straight: you acknowledge that your job is to go around fixing one-off problems that people are having, and yet you think your experience should be treated as the norm? Do you...

    You sound like the most knowledgeable guy in this thread, so hopefully you can contradict a point I've made several times in this thread (a point that hopefully I'm wrong about). If you're shipping a...

    Good reading. All points that seem obvious after you're read them.

    If one takes everything you've said at face value, the sad conclusion is that the divided world of Linux is fundamentally hostile...

    If that's true, the Wayland will still have (indirectly) accomplished its goal of making Linux a better place, so everyone still wins.

    Yeah, I thought about that a few minutes after I posted. Still, I don't think the problem is insurmountable. Desura could maintain their own list of package names and map them to their equivalents in...

    The only time I tried to work with audio was about 3 years ago, back when PulseAudio was a buggy mess and was very poorly integrated with the few distros that used it. I haven't attempted it since...

    Agreed. It should be trivially easy for Desura to maintain a list of required libs for each game. Then when the user installs a game, Desura just gives a shout to apt-get or yum to install those...

    I think it's an excellent idea. If those three distributions could agree to a "standard libraries" spec that vendors can refer to, then closed source apps could bundle their own additional libs...

    Thankfully this is one battle where all the major players are on the side of progress. The malcontents are a small enough crowd as to have no effect on Wayland's development. There's a lot of money...

    Sorry, I was unclear about what I meant. I meant that paragraph in the context of Linux as a mainstream desktop OS. Linux is undeniably important in the world of business; no one sane would argue...

    That's not a reasonable expectation for end users. Yes, many current Linux users are smart enough to "sudo apt-get install <the stuff that the site says I need>", but they shouldn't have to be....

    I've been quietly hoping that Wayland makes a dramatic impact. I've worked a tiny bit with audio on Linux -- just enough to know what an absolute NIGHTMARE it is. Graphics I'm sure are the same. I'm...

    Proprietary software in Linux

    I doubt you've ever heard a Linux zealot complain about the lack of games on Linux. I think they, like you suggested, are quite happy with Linux being a hobby, or being a manifestation of their...
