    It doesn't take a very powerful system to play Metroid ;)

    Obviously I meant 50% more work in the display manager-specific portions, not the whole code.


    You never looked at the example I linked to, did you? You also need to be able to draw to it. You...

    You asked for an example where the program has to talk directly to the display server. The article has an example.


    You propose that there be an API to determine what display server a program is...

    That is great. If Julia ends up succeeding, it would be wonderful. It really has some nice features. But my point is that it won't live or die based on its technical abilities. It will live or...

    That is a big "if". There is no guarantee that the toolkits will support Mir upstream. Canonical may need to keep their own patches (likely for GTK, unknown for Qt).

    And even if you are using a...

    Sure, but it still means developers need to code three solutions to their problem instead of two. It is adding...

    I think the big issue is memory (32b is limited) and number of registers 64b brings, rather than the 64b itself.
  9. Yes, individual people use individual languages,...

    Yes, individual people use individual languages, but at least in my experience very few people are using multiple languages at the same time. And people generally aren't using them because they are...

    I am in technical computing, and I have never actually seen someone do the "many languages" thing. I know people who use python, people who use perl,...

    KDE plasma workspaces is planning on using systemd socket activation for service management under wayland. Enlightenment also seems to support systemd socket activation for services, although it...

    That the "results of academic research made available to anyone without distinctions" is a fairly recent concept that still hasn't gotten universal acceptance. You still need to pay to get the...

    Whether you use it or not, it is still there cluttering up the UI. Dolphin doesn't even have a "bookmarks" menu.


    You can access and drag-and-drop remote files with kio, which is the normal way...

    It has all the options of all the things it does. However, many of them are mixed in together, which means for any single task the interface is very cluttered. For example file, folder and web page...

    Yet people keep trying it then giving up. There has been at least two or three failed attempts at various points. I am sure there is a reason for that.

    So in other words, you have no clue about the examples I listed, but you still stated definitively that they are not "being run on the metal".

    I don't think there is a plan to have a KDE SC anymore. My understanding is that applications will release on their own schedule from here on.

    I know a bunch of applications are currently in...
