  1. You had said wayland does not fix tearing, now...

    You had said wayland does not fix tearing, now you say it does but you don't like the way it does so?
    Wayland has a modern architecture, and as such it is composited. Of course you are free to keep...
  2. Do you know what tearing is? It's that artifact...

    Do you know what tearing is? It's that artifact you see when an app draws to the framebuffer at the same time the graphics card is pushing it to the screen. That doesn't happen in Wayland, because...
  3. In Wayland. I said "It is possible that...

    In Wayland.



    I said "It is possible that there will be a way", not that there is. The point is that the compositor controls the user experience, already. The user doesn't decide to give focus...
  4. As I said already, apps have no way to steal or...

    As I said already, apps have no way to steal or even request the focus. Setting the focus is a compositor-initiated process. It is possible that there will be a way for apps to request the focus, I...
  5. I disagree. Anyway X allows them too. Of...

    I disagree. Anyway X allows them too.



    Of course the compositor is supposed to give the focus to one app based on user input. The point is that the focus doesn't come out of thin air, it's the...
  6. Wayland doesn't require client side decorations,...

    Wayland doesn't require client side decorations, simply put the current compositors do.
    And an app can't steal the focus, it is the job of the compositor to give it to which app it wants to.
  7. Besides what imirkin said there is another point....

    Besides what imirkin said there is another point. Many people seems to think about a open source voluntary-based project as a software house product, where you can decide to move the human resources...

    Qt is not tied to KDE, KDE is tied to Qt. Gtk+ seem to be tied to Gnome, and that's exactly their problem.
  9. When did you dream this stuff? Wayland does not...

    When did you dream this stuff? Wayland does not behave like a language. Did you just make this up or did you read it somewhere? Besides, neither OpenGL/CL nor Mantle are languages (though they...
  10. Why does noone go to read the proposed patches...

    Why does noone go to read the proposed patches before starting typing nonsense?

    The point of this protocol is *not* to deal with fullscreen apps. Period.
    The point of this protocol is to deal...
  11. This is mainly to make the life easier for little...

    This is mainly to make the life easier for little compositors. With this protocol a compositor can just implement a Wayland backend and run on top of Weston instead of implementing all the X11, KMS,...
  12. Jolla contributes back a lot to the Mer/Nemo...

    Jolla contributes back a lot to the Mer/Nemo project which is fully opensource. It's not fair to compare it to Android. Google took Linux and made a lot of modifications which after years started to...
  13. No. The decision between server side and client...

    No. The decision between server side and client side allocated buffers is done entirely in the EGL implementation, Wayland and Wayland compositors don't care, at all. You can use the same compositor...
  14. That's just nonsense, what is it supposed to...

    That's just nonsense, what is it supposed to mean? Both Mir and wayland compositors use the underlying API to show anything onscreen, such as KMS, EGL, fbdev, whatever.
  15. I'm not sure what you mean here. Are you talking...

    I'm not sure what you mean here. Are you talking about the client side decorations? That may be problem, but a solution can be found. I don't know what's Mir's policy in regard to that but my bet is...
  16. And what way would that be? Mir and wayland...

    And what way would that be? Mir and wayland compositors work exactly the same in this regard.
  17. You don't know what you're talking about. Wayland...

    You don't know what you're talking about. Wayland is a protocol, and different implementations of that protocol, by definition, are compatible. You don't need KDE's compositor to run KDE...
  18. And why would that be clear? Mir has no magic...

    And why would that be clear? Mir has no magic closed source driver support, it uses the same system which can be used for wayland: libhybris.
  19. Why? It has nothing to do with wayland.

    Why? It has nothing to do with wayland.
  20. Oh, please Michael. If you gave to you the time...

    Oh, please Michael. If you gave to you the time needed to read the announcement on the ML instead of wanting to put out the article in four (4) minutes, you'd have realized that none of what you...
