    The theme API changes each version? Yawn...

    Seriously, it will stabilise eventually. Without these changes, we wouldn't have some of the best features (like the new Cairo stuff and CSS styles)....

    Speak for yourself, mate. You're not forced to read every article here, you know.

    Wrong. I need decent OpenGL acceleration to use CAD applications in virtual machines for work. VirtualBox isn't sufficient for this unfortunately but VMWare is.

    Is it just me, or does this project strike anyone else as being very pointless and destined for failure?

    Why aren't they just writing a Gnome-2 style panel shell replacement and some configuration...

    I can't speak for Qt apps, but with GTK's pluggable backend support in 3.0, you will be able to switch and app from X to Wayland by closing it and then opening it with a different command line switch...

    Why would Windows 8 only support Macs, some servers and the small percentage of computers (probably less than 10 or 20%) that support UEFI?

    That makes about as much sense as the rumours a few...

    The thing is, most BIOSes don't work great. Most are pretty crap. Kernels have to do a lot of extra work to work around bugs in BIOSes - like the thing about trying to get a consistent reboot that...

    This is one of my top annoyances with Gnome Shell - why the designers thought that hiding commonly used action behind a non-discoverable keyboard shortcut was good design is beyond me.

    I've raised...

    Yeah, Apple never contributes anything. It's not like they funded the entire LLVM project... And they never had anything to do with Webkit. And it's not like you can download the whole XNU kernel and...

    Mac OS X ships with the same X server - xorg. The current version in 10.6 (Snow Leopard) is based on xorg-server 1.4.2, although you can download a version based on 1.10.1 from the XQuartz dev site....

    You probably have to set those variables and then restart Wayland for it to take effect, so you don't have anything to worry about.

    But, you know, if you want to be sensationalist, go on... Imagine if people had acted 100 years ago as they are right now - we would not have...

    Interesting fact - more people have died from medical complications from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill (and its cleanup, where they used carcinogenic dispersants) than will eventually die from this...

    It's actively worked on... I wouldn't expect it to take any longer than a few days. In the meantime, the last git commit is yesterday so you can probably compile it with Gtk+ 3.0

    Gtkmm is the C++ binding. It's a great API and is far easier to use than the C API.

    I think ES 2.0 is just the minimum requirement for the compositor (so it's able to run on mobile devices). Since it's just a subset of OpenGL, it's the same performance, just less features.

    But...

    Yeah, this could have potentially been a big problem. Luckily the multiple backend work made it into GTK 3.0 (which is getting close to release now) or it may have had to wait until the next major...

    Steam is written using a proprietary system called VGUI. Valve wrote it to render user interfaces in its games originally. The client linked to libGL and XLib so I assume that it's mostly using...
