    I can't see how they could develop kdbus without forking the kernel.
  2. Yes I think I will be moving over from Opensuse...

    Yes I think I will be moving over from Opensuse to Kubuntu 15.04. Especially as Kubuntu 15.10 could well be out before Suse 13.3. I'd be interested to know how the Kubuntu and Gubuntu maintainers...

    Um I wonder what would happen if Google just disappeared some day, without notice?

    No one was asking for them to wait for Wayland. Wayland was completed. It was up to them to convert Unity to the Wayland protocol. Canonical have totally abused their position of dominance on the...

    I saw in an interview a little whole back that Mark Shuttleworth claimed that the display server was a small piece of software on the top of the stack, unlike systemd. My technological knowledge on...

    That's disappointing. Lennart Pottering seemed to me to be hinting at the introduction of containerised apps as part of the systemd project. The other great hope is Wayland for compartmentalising and...

    Closed source containers Apps seem to be the way to go to me. As already pointed out big games need to be closed source. There's no way you could do GTA V as an open source project. Personally I...

    Why are you using the older distro? I run three monitors off an AMD HD 7790. I still found I needed the closed source drivers with 14.04. With Opensuse 13.2 and Kubuntu 14.10 I've finally been able...

    So as I understand it, if one say wrote an application to run on the future versions of the Steam box, it wouldn't work on Ubuntu, but it would work on future KDE and Gnome Systems.

    Even if you hate Systemd, it hardly seems a threat to Android Init. Now I can understand that for those that run servers things may be completely different. But if its their freedom as Server...

    As a personal device linux user I'm a bit confused. Boycott Systemd seems the most odd message to be broadcasting.

    I've been using Linux on my two desktops for a couple of years and I've just...

    I'm on Suse 13.1as my main distro. I might have been tempted to switch to Fedora 21, but it doesn't look like they're going to beat 13.2 by much if at all now. I've got a radon HD 7790 running three...

    I'd like to get on to Wayland fairly early on and start coding for it. I can ditch Firefox if I need to. I'll switch from KDE to Gnome if I have to, although I'd be sad to give up Dolphin, but I do...

    Funny I was just reading on Z97 the other day. I've been thinking of getting another SSD to put Windows on. I multi-boot Linux off my SSD, but then started wondering whether this m2 really offers a...

    First off the complaint about people making a profit from your work and giving nothing back seems stupid. If you write a word processor or spread sheet programme, then numerous businesses can use it,...

    As a KDE user I'm saddened that KDE prioritised Qt 5 over switching to Wayland. Wayland is absolutely vital for Linux desktop, the actual Linux that most of us enthusiasts care most about, if its to...

    Kde was the default desktop. Gnome has just created fragmentation, with the dishonestly name Unity, Mate, Cinnamon lxde xfce etc. We need convergence: one default display server, one window manager,...

    Maybe this is time to question the whole Gnome philosophy. I don't feel the Open source fundamentalist approach has really worked. We've ended up with Google being the biggest user of Linux. While we...

    For now the JVM is the lesser evil. Scala is a far superior language to either Java or C#. It runs on the JVM. If we can continue to ramp up the adoption of Scala then we can get the resources and...

    Well I've been predicting for a while that the Self-Appointed Benevolent Dictator for Life would prove to be the Mussolini of Open Source.
