    I gather there's a lot of code in Mir to support Unity. That seems like the more likely direction: Mir lives on as a utility layer between Wayland and Unity.

    But what do dmd and Guix actually offer or intend to offer that Upstart and Nix don't? Other than being written in a different language with a different license?

    The ironic thing about this RedHat vs Canonical stuff is that RedHat is known for servers and Canonical is known for dekstops, but Ubuntu's server edition is better than its desktop edition, and...

    As best I can tell, dmd and Guix are half-baked copies of Upstart and Nix. I don't see that they're really bringing anything new to the table here.

    I'd just like to interject for a moment. What youíre referring to as Linux, is in fact, systemd/Linux, or as Iíve recently taken to calling it, systemd plus Linux. :p

    Ah, I don't think you understand. Libinput doesn't do anything with the input, all it does is collect the input and report it with very minimal abstractions. The abstractions are on the level of...

    Both. Fedora 22 will also have quite a few improvements with regard to Wayland, independent of the improvements coming in GNOME 3.16.

    It's a gesture API. You use it to implement gestures. It doesn't implement gestures on its own.

    The idea of a "standard base system" being bundled under one banner isn't even new to Linux. It's just that GNU isn't pulling their weight any more.

    It's not usually for me either. I develop proprietary games, so the ability to use the code in a proprietary product is the most important thing to me, which limits my choices to public domain, BSD,...

    That's too simplistic; you can't reduce licenses to a single dimension. GPL takes away the right to use the code in a proprietary product, like you can do with public domain and BSD code, but it...

    Nobody denies this. Wayland isn't even ready for mainstream non-networked use.

    Remote desktop was merged into Weston nearly two years ago.

    8% is a lot when performance is the only reason people still use your compiler.

    I'm a systemd fan who converted from FreeBSD. Does that even us out?

    Self-hosting is the term used to describe a compiler written in the same language it's compiling. The link I gave addresses the chicken and egg problem.

    What kills me the most are people who don't trust cookies, but have no issues using the browser's built-in "remember my password" feature, which just saves your password somewhere on your hard drive....

    The irony to the whole "systemd is taking away our freedom" argument is that for years, GNU was king userland. But between systemd and LLVM, GNU has lost their monopoly on userspace. Yet somehow,...

    They absolutely would. Small, uncommon libraries aren't going to end up in runtimes, but it's about striking a balance.
