  1. That's the difference, yeah. On X11, the program...

    That's the difference, yeah. On X11, the program that handles these things is just another desktop app, with exactly the same privileges as some dodgy key-logger. But on a Wayland setup, it's part of...
  2. Agreed. There's just no point in continuing to...

    Agreed. There's just no point in continuing to report on LGP, unless they stage a miraculous comeback.

    But gaming is alive and well on Linux, and while it doesn't have the full selection available...
  3. I'm astonished... all those links in the article,...

    I'm astonished... all those links in the article, and almost all of them pointing to external sources, not to other Phoronix stories....

    Most of these don't affect me much. The /tmp change,...
  4. I'd disagree. The Wayland preview in F21 is...

    I'd disagree. The Wayland preview in F21 is *mostly* usable. True, there are still some bits that aren't working, but it's good enough that I could log in and use it for a few days without major...
  5. I don't know. I imagine they'll be cautious......

    I don't know. I imagine they'll be cautious... but the preview in F21 is already mostly usable. I tried it out for a few days when I upgraded to F21, and the only problem I encountered was broken...
  6. It's a relatively low-level language for doing...

    It's a relatively low-level language for doing systems programming... a modern replacement for C or C++, designed to avoid a lot of the simple errors (buffer overflows, etc) that are easy to get...
  7. And that's their decision.... they're the ones...

    And that's their decision.... they're the ones doing the work, they get to make the decisions. And isn't it funny, how all of the people who actually do the work of maintaining major distributions...
  8. But "choice" isn't something that magically...

    But "choice" isn't something that magically happens. Choice is what you get when people are prepared to do the work to create and maintain alternatives. The absence of choice doesn't come from the...
  9. Oh, they always *plan* to release on schedule....

    Oh, they always *plan* to release on schedule. It's just ṫhat the schedule they end up releasing on is at least a few weeks later than the one they started planning for.
  10. Well, the ConsoleKit repo on freedesktop.org...

    Well, the ConsoleKit repo on freedesktop.org hasn't seen a commit in the past year and a half, so I'm guessing they're just coping.
  11. And while they might not have made any explicit...

    And while they might not have made any explicit statement, I doubt any of the other desktop derivatives will either. Because they'll be looking to their upstream projects for direction - to KDE, to...
  12. Probably, yes. In F21, it's there as a preview -...

    Probably, yes. In F21, it's there as a preview - a chance to exhibit it to anyone curious enough to give it a shot. It might not quite be usable as a regular desktop yet, but it's mostly functional,...

    Not just parts would need re-writing... it would...

    Not just parts would need re-writing... it would be pretty much everything except maybe the bits that read from config files. FB isn't using toolkits for rendering - it uses X directly - so...
  14. Yes, that's my thinking too. "Gnome Software" is...

    Yes, that's my thinking too. "Gnome Software" is not a tool for expert users - it's a tool for people who don't know what a CLI is, and therefore will not be interested in installing CLI apps....

    Was there any reason to think Wayland would make a difference to power use? The only things that differ between the two scenarios are the gtk+ backends and Mutter version - and something is very...

    That would help some categories of bug, certainly - eliminating buffer overflows and the like, bugs that can only occur in an environment where you can accidentally poke around in the wrong bit of...
  17. Not just GNOME. It's pretty much anything...

    Not just GNOME. It's pretty much anything user-facing... desktop stuff that there's only one monitor, even if it looks like two.
  18. Close. If you distribute binaries, you must make...

    Close. If you distribute binaries, you must make the source code available on request to the people you provided the binaries to - you don't have to supply it to any random individual who happens to...
  19. Well, yes.. that's what I said. Not sure what...

    Well, yes.. that's what I said. Not sure what you're arguing with now...
  20. Oh, Fedora schedules have always been out of...

    Oh, Fedora schedules have always been out of whack, long before F18. But nevertheless, the schedule gives them something to aim for - they might be late, but they at least have something telling them...
