    Canonical has the same goal (sandboxed applications etc) with Unity 8 and Mir for a while now, that already works on Ubuntu Touch I believe but it wont arrive on the desktop before the next LTS when...

    You wont see older applications on the phone, this seems to be a demo only as in "we can do it", they dont have any intention of using X applications on the phone, but this is still nice for those...

    Gnome on Wayland that someone mentioned is far from being without issues, but they often pull out that one as proof that Wayland is ready to replace X.org. Neither Mir nor Wayland are ready to...
  4. Where is Mir forced on anybody? Nowhere, it will...

    Where is Mir forced on anybody? Nowhere, it will be used by Ubuntu only and no one else for now, and it will still allow for installation of X.org (dont know whether Wayland will be available), and...

    Good idea, when he does something you cant escape from it :D
  6. Last time I checked Mir was open source with...

    Last time I checked Mir was open source with GPLv3 license and could be forked by anyone, yes it has CLA but it is hardly closed source proprietary piece of software. As for forced changes in Linux,...
  7. Exactly, GTK accepted Mir backend (disabled by...

    Exactly, GTK accepted Mir backend (disabled by default since it is experimental code) and I believe SDL, some others frown upon it, yet nearly everyone accepted systemd which is not without its...
  8. Mir is somewhat of an persona non grata at the...

    Mir is somewhat of an persona non grata at the moment in the Linux community because it supposedly fragments Linux, not that Linux isnt fragmented already in many ways but that is not the topic at...
  9. Because of the user base, Ubuntu is the largest...

    Because of the user base, Ubuntu is the largest distribution out there, Debian has a small user base on the desktop compared to Ubuntu, they cant afford to stop supporting Ubuntu, that would make...
  10. That is mistake in my opinion as their phone is...

    That is mistake in my opinion as their phone is too expensive for what it offers, they should have opted for an existing phone like Ubuntu did or buy some generic phone from Chinese manufacturers and...
  11. Yes which is why it is good that Canonical chose...

    Yes which is why it is good that Canonical chose several Nexus devices for their reference hardware, anyone having those can install Ubuntu Touch and have it fully working. Though porting anything to...
  12. Same as Ubuntu, Canonical is not a hardware...

    Same as Ubuntu, Canonical is not a hardware vendor, but adoption through hardware vendors and telecoms is critical to OS success. Ports to Android devices mean little without phones preinstalled with...

    Some applications were redesigned many times, store needed work, and general improvements were necessary here and there like the lag you mention on dial pad application although I seen a video with a...

    That shows Canonical is good at marketing, and it wont be a vaporphone for much longer.
  15. There is one thing good about Meizu wanting to...

    There is one thing good about Meizu wanting to adapt Ubuntu Touch (in whatever way), it means their are aiming high with it as the article seems to imply that multiple phones will get the new OS....
  16. Ubuntu Touch for Chinese market will get adapted...

    Ubuntu Touch for Chinese market will get adapted in the way Meizu thinks is good, probably with custom scopes and services, maybe some minor visual changes, but it will not be that different from the...
  17. SailfishOS seems less open source than Ubuntu...

    SailfishOS seems less open source than Ubuntu Touch, their UI is proprietary and I think some other elements too. What I dont like about SailfishOS is that it looks like Android clone, Ubuntu Touch...
  18. This is not a delay to anyone who is following...

    This is not a delay to anyone who is following the development of Ubuntu Touch, final work is being done on the OS and early 2015 was always the best guess for the release date, there is still work...

    Mir is already used in Ubuntu Touch, it is in heavy development for desktop use (which is a lot more work) and it should arrive on desktops with 16.04 LTS, Wayland is not fully ready for the desktop...

    I didnt say Mir was not open for criticism, I was pointing to some people who make a sport of it and in very hateful ways and they dont even use Ubuntu. So what if Canonical made some erroneous...
