    Well in fairness it was NVIDIA alone that was pushing that OpenGL presentation for a year+ until Intel and AMD decided to join the talks.

    A year from now the headline is going to simply be, "Canonical Is Shutting Down Ubuntu".

    That's like saying that if people want a usable desktop they should use Windows. If you want to use Linux you don't need a fancy GUI.

    It's hard to know if these efforts are really going to pan out. Valve still hasn't presented a good reason to abandon the Windows platform and the number of people willing to forfeit the console...

    Maybe it's just force of habit but my mouse pointer tends to stay on the right side of the window since that's where the scrollbar is.

    Either way, it's just one less configurable preference which...
