  1. systemd is not the Linux API, its just a daemon....

    systemd is not the Linux API, its just a daemon. fanotify is a Linux kernel system call. Does Qt utilize that? If it does not, is this because there are no gains to Qt?
  2. How would I check for what I asked? Why shouldn't...

    How would I check for what I asked? Why shouldn't I ask here? Maybe somebody comes up with an good and helpful answer.
    The stuff with the "abstraction layer" is good hint. Yes, I attacked it a bit,...
  3. fishing in muddy waters versus trolling

    I am "fishing in muddy waters", please do not confuse that with trolling. On the basis of my questions, you should see that.
  4. Abstraction layers

    Hmmm. I hope Qt is not the new X, with own 2D drivers, own printer support, own bla...

    Don't the Nvidia propietary drivers support EGL?
    Wasn't EGL 1.5 released at the GDC?


    I don't see your problem.

    Question: there were/are some Wayland-specific stuff added to the EGL in Mesa....

    The GNU C Libary may be bloated due to "feature creep" , but the Linux kernel System Call Interface...
  7. Linux API versus POSIX-API

    You are right and the Linux kernel is probably the best proof for this claim!

    My point being: you still need platform-specific glue-code to support that platform.

    And my question being,...
  8. Linux support

    Another questions just popped into my mind:

    Is the Linux support of Qt achieved through POSIX-support or through a distinct code for the Linux system call interface?

    You find a visualization of...

    KHMTL is part of KDE not Qt. I gues the same is true for the fork called WebKit. ;-)

    The code that is necessary to support running on WinRT, Backberry, etc. should not, in any way, slow down performance on Linux, should it? Ergo, I do not care about the existence of that code.

    But...

    I can't! I simply looked at the lines of code, and though knowing you most probably cannot compare between C and C++, I asked myself about "the bloat". Is it there? Is it serious?
    Let's at least...
  13. Lines of codes and commit numbers

    GLX-gear, Lines of codes and commit numbers are somewhat useless benchmarks. Yeah. Especially when comparing different programming laguages (C and C++).
    Still, I'd like to start a (civil) discussion...
  14. bloated, more bloated, Qt?

    When you let Ohloh.net compare the bare "lines of code" you get:

    Qt4 3,174,306 http://www.ohloh.net/p/qt
    Qt5 6,729,055 http://www.ohloh.net/p/qt5
    glibc 2,382,058 ...
  15. Future

    Uh, that is really a bit hard to digest. The way you're explaining it: you are a programmer and non-native English speaker.
    A BIG THANK YOU for your explanation, I am sure, it will help me along the...

    granny speaking here: is the "display server" = mir the problem? or is the "display server protocol"=libmir-client + libmir-server?

  19. Wikipedia adds to the confusion

    This article here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mir_%28software%29 only mentions the fact, that Mir is a display server. The same is true for its talk page:...
  20. Why do you all compare Wayland, a protocol with Mir, a display server?

    As far as I understood, Mir is a display server, like Weston or like X.Org Server, but, while Weston supports only Wayland and X.Org Server supports only X11, Mir would/will support a multitude of...
