  1. Back to square one.

    **A number of init systems exist, and it is clear that there is not yet broad consensus as to what the best init system might look like.

    The above is quite clearly contradicted by:

    **because...

    Other open source projects are (more or less) open for discussion and inclusion of patches/ideas. Canonical from the outside seems rather closed on this. It is be part of Ubuntu or ... (I'd say get...
  3. It isn't quite as bleak as you think it is. Mir...

    It isn't quite as bleak as you think it is. Mir is a compositor which targets EGL. This is what Wayland does as well. Since Unity is written to run a top of Mir and Mir already outputs to EGL, the...
  4. I doubt it. Mir is at best a distraction and at...

    I doubt it. Mir is at best a distraction and at worst irrelevant for the larger Linux ecosystem. The people still bitching about Mir vs Wayland are non-developers. Developers have said what they have...

    I saw a list recently of the most anticipated Touch apps in the Ubuntu subreddit, penned down by an Ubuntu contributor. Most of what they wrote were replacements for apps that are established and...

    In other words, you are free to do what you want as long as you follow the Glorius Leader.
  7. This seems to heavily contradict itself. First...

    This seems to heavily contradict itself. First you claim no one needs to use Ubuntu, but then you turn around and rail against the number of non-Ubuntu distro's (calling them a failure to boot). So...

    Well, at least Apple has an OS to show for it....

    It may be dickish to make fun of the obvious, but OS U had no chance of succeeding. The "project" didn't have anything substantial to show to make it an an acceptable risk to give money on...

    Oh I don't know, maybe Torvalds himself in his book Just for fun.

    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.
