    So I got this on day one even though I right now have only an i7 with HD4000. At first it was unplayably slow (less than5-10 fps), but honestly the improvements thus far are fairly decent. I played...

    If they had used wayland they would still be stuck writing a display server and compositor for Unity since wayland is just a protocol, one that mir could add later (see the mirspec...

    Kudos to the intel and mesa teams. My i7 laptop, my primary computer, has in the last year undergone an incrdible transformation in capability. While I won't pick intel for a steambox, for many...

    I have been using xmir on 13.10 for the past month, and while it is in pretty decent shape at this point, I can see why they would delay broad roll out. Multi monitor needs to be better and with the...

    I got the steam user survey for the first time this month, I have been using steam since the earliest linux betas. I suspect this is a random sampling thing. I don't think the sample numbers are...

    Just because dozens of people repeat the same fallacious statements over and over does not give their arguments more weight. Most of the time those dozen people just sound bitter and/or crazy.

    So before this devolves into the usual mess...

    I am impressed by the improvement. If it is also stable and eliminates screen tearing, I may start using this soon.

    I would still like to see...

    I have been waiting quite some time for a major distro to have something wayland ready... this is a good start. Here's hoping it is great.

    If canonical made the perfect software with the purest of open source licence licence in the world and upstreamed it all... people would still bitch. Lets not kid ourselves here.

    One announcement that was corrected had an inaccuracy about wayland... the rest of the bashing has been pretty one sided.

    I will use ubuntu in the future, it is still a great distro and I like...

    Red Hat 5.0 but there were hardware conficts so I went back to OS2 at home and IRIX at work.

    20/30 fps=66% of the frame rate or a 33% drop. I hate to be the math stickler but it is as though basic math skills are thrown out the window whenever Ubuntu is discussed (a lot of it in this thread...
