    Default X.Org Was Not Accepted To GSoC 2012

    Phoronix: X.Org Was Not Accepted To GSoC 2012

    Well, here's a surprise, Google has decided to not accept the X.Org Foundation into participating in this year's Google Summer of Code. Any students interested in contributing to X.Org / Mesa / Wayland over the summer will not be part of Google's annual arrangement...

    So they accepted Haiku (full respect to the project but i can't find a real utility) and rejected Wayland??

    Maybe they will base the next version of Android on haiku? Bunch of hypocrites.

    I see where they're coming from, X projects haven't had a great success rate in the previous years.

    How do they know yet? As I understand it the full list will be 180, and when I check now the list only has 149 so far. Yesterday when I checked it went from 69 to 80 something.

    This is not why. Please don't spread misinformation.

    Just because they accepted something like haiku and rejected very important part of Linux.
