    Here we are talking. At least this is a technical reason, not an opinion.
    Just for my information, what problem does it cause in practice?

    On the plus side, the switch to Unity 8/Mir is supposed...

    Then use Kubuntu, Ubuntu Gnome or whatever. They don't use Unity by default and probably will end up using Wayland. Yet they are still "Ubuntu".

    I can understand people switching distro because...

    You do know that no Ubuntu user is forced to use Mir and Unity, right?
  4. No they are not. A .deb has to be installed has...

    No they are not. A .deb has to be installed has root and launch scripts written by the packager.

    Here we are talking about a random developer pushing its new app version directly to users. You...

    I have a MSI R7970 Lightning on Ubuntu 13.10 and it works well with the PPA, except for one thing: the fans seems to be stuck around 50-70% all the time, making my desktop too noisy to be usable.
    I...

    Fair enough. Even if I personally doubt that alternative desktops are actually more supported on Debian than on Ubuntu :-)

    Why would they use it if they don't want it?
    X will be supported by canonical for at least the next 5 years and, in the "worst" case, it will just be synced from Debian after.
    Really, some here...

    Good news for you: you can use whatever desktop you want on Ubuntu. Unity is just one of them.
    And if you want to carefully select each package you install on your system, you can also do a net...

    Source?
    Ubuntu is Free software, no one can force you to pay Canonical to use/fork/distribute it.
    The only Canonical power is about the trademark "Ubuntu" but Valve named its OS "Steam OS" so there...

    AFAIK, buffers are allocated server side. The server just provide a pointer to the client.

    They contributed patches. It's not like they asked Intel devs to develop XMir support themselves...



    Please learn how to read.

    Intel doesn't care...

    I find this move to be quite strange.

    AFAIK, most Ubuntu-preinstalled PC sold around the world (eg. more than 1000 Dell shops in China) come with Intel hardware.
    One could think that the business...

    Like it or not, vanilla Mir with Unity 8 is going to be default by 14.10. Xmir will be a very important component of it, to keep compatibility with old apps.
    As XMir should not, if developed right,...

    This.



    I agree that Ubuntu never was a perfectly stable distro. You usually had to wait 2 or three months after a release before having most visible bugs fixed.
    But things are improving in...

    You can't seriously judge the overall stability of Ubuntu (or any other distro) by testing a development release.
    And, in this case, 13.10 is not even "feature-frozen", witch means that the...

    To be fair, this CLA is not used anymore (see the notice at the top of the page).
    But yes, AFAIK it was quite similar to the Canonical CLA.

    The contributor also has this right.
    AFAIK, he can also grant it to the whole world if he wants (eg. by publishing the patch with a BSD or MIT licence).

    So, you also think that BSD licences are non-free?
    After all, software that use it can also be relicensed.

    Indeed, and that's the point of Matthew in his blog post.
    The bug is not a problem in itself because it is known and it will be fixed before Xmir becomes default in 13.10 (so before the end of next...
