  1. No, having to write a new program to do all that...

    No, having to write a new program to do all that stuff means it can't do it right now, and won't be able to do it until someone writes a program to make it do so. It is no better than saying COBOL...

    *sigh* Now we are back to writing shell scripts. You clearly have no interest in actually reading the posts you are responding to.

    I am still not sure whether you legitimately don't understand the difference between "you could theoretically program something that does that" and "it can do that right now" or you are just being...

    None of that will be a problem at all. Neither apps nor drivers need to care about the specifics the compositor, just like apps and drivers don't need to care about the specifics of the compositor...

    I didn't think so. So are you claiming Linux isn't dominant here also? If so, on what basis do you say that? If not, why even bring it up?

    So do you have a list of computers by instructions per second?

    For TPC it looks like mostly Windows, although Linux is again at the top in many categories (primarily Red Hat and EXACluster). ...

    Do you have a citation for that? I cannot find any specific information on what operating systems they use currently (the most recent information is from 2001, and that says that Linux was used at...

    Yes, I am sure that when someone is spending 10s or even 100s of millions of dollars on to get one of the absolute most powerful computers in the world, they choose the operating system based on...

    485 of the top 500 supercomputers in the world run Linux.

    I am confused by this. The GUI of trojito is written in C++, but so is all of the backend code. If nobody working on the fork understands C++, how are they planning to maintain all the C++ backend...

    No, as with all KDE file managers, file dialog boxes, and file transfer tools, Dolphin shells out those things to the KIO library. KIO figures out what sort of thing it was told to get, converts...

    This is a forum. The whole point of a forum is to discuss things. If you don't want to read the discussion, then don't come.

    Yes, the UI will probably need to be rewritten. But a lot of their TODO list involves things that are provided by the underlying frameworks and other libraries (like KIO) that will not have to be...

    That is not as easy as it appears at first glance (for example Mir's early security problems). And in Wayland the compositor is also the window manager, so it has to handle all the window management...

    Of course they are allowed to do whatever they want. Just like we are allowed to have an opinion on whether their decision is the best one. Of course they have the final say, but that doesn't mean...

    Linux caught on because of those reasons, but none of those were the reason that Linux was started. It started as a hobby project by someone who wanted to play around with operating system design. ...
