    Well, some comments over the past 3 months have me fooled then. Scope creep can sometimes be a good thing, though. Linux started out as a terminal emulator... A "systemd 2xx added maild" article...

    Well, from what I've read, the in kernel VT code is crufty, fragile and "scary". Moving the VT code out of the kernel and into userland, while using saner and cleaner code has been a wish. Does it...

    Brosis, I don't think anybody here is actively hoping for this project to fail. On the other hand, if you've followed the Linux landscape for a while, you know that lofty ideas alone won't make this...

    I'd say that Linux systems that "just work" are an opportunity to generate more jobs. If Linux becomes easier to administer and more reliable, it stands to reason more companies will deploy Linux...

    To be fair to Canonical, Upstart predates systemd by several years. Upstart even was part of RHEL 6, before Red Hat became interested in systemd. So it's the other way around this time. Kay and...

    Since it encompasses all radeon drivers, why not name it for what it is? radeon_all_dri.so.

    I'd rather Canonical would refactor Mir into a Wayland compositor. Linux (the kernel) + systemd + Wayland is seriously gearing up to be the next big shift in *nix technology. Distractions, like a...

    The only thing missing now is the announcement by Canonical that the Mir system compositor will be rewritten to be a Wayland compositor.

    Be careful what you wish for. A dominant Canonical and a ubiquitous Ubuntu, while bringing all the benefits of a mono-culture, like everybody and their dog standardising on and writing for and using...

    Coreboot is one of those projects thats always interesting. A project which is attractive from a security and FOSS standpoint. But also a project that seems to be perpetually in catch up and only...

    What is the problem with LGPL? If you don't intend to modify and only use it to boot, its quid pro quo provisions never kick in.

    I'll believe it when I hold a real, manufactured Ubuntu touch phone

    So, being relegated to 'parasitic' aftermarket, DIY, post-loading onto already sold hardware (and other vendor's driver infrastructure) is "a pretty big milestone". Oh Canonical, I'll give you an A...

    I would really like to run Wayland with nvidia developed foss drivers (on par with the other platforms) on 64bit system.

    Erhm, no. XWayland, what is tested here, should be compared with XMir. As it stands, both have an overhead penalty over native X.org.

    When both native Mir and native Wayland software appears (and...

    Yes, if they keep this up, I might have to consider two vendors when I get my next graphics card.

    Powdigsig, can you answer me this honestly; have you ever looked beyond Ubuntu to other mainstream distro's? This has been standard functionality on Linux (not only Ubuntu, but on Fedora, OpenSUSE,...
