    Default Ubuntu TV Still Being Ported To Unity 3D

    Phoronix: Ubuntu TV Still Being Ported To Unity 3D

    With Unity 2D having been dropped from Ubuntu 12.10, another consequence of this controversial decision is that the Ubuntu TV work must be ported to Unity (3D)...

    U must really think that they will no get extra tearing with compiz, but most likely they will introduce just that if not already happening. They should take a look at xbmc i would say... Usually xbmc runs best fullscreen effects disabled. Btw. xbmc mainline was merged with opdenkamp's pvr branch recently. So the main repo that's not merged is just FernetMenta with xvba support. FernetMenta was usually on top of opdenkamp and now on top of mainline - so i hope xvba support has got higher changes now to get merged.

    Default Port and port again

    So first they're going to port it from Unity 2D to Unity 3D.

    Then when that is done, they're going to port Unity 3D from Compiz to Mutter?

    Much porting and porting again.

    Where did you get the idea that they were going to port Unity from Compiz to Mutter?

    Mutter -> Compiz -> Compiz & Qt ->Compiz & Compiz/Nux -> ???

    All that in less than 2 years. It's always more fun starting new things, than maintaining and refining the old stuff.
    They've dropped a mature and flexible lib like Qt, in favor of their own in-house GUI toolkit based on the buggy Compiz (Not-Invented-Here syndrome)

    They've started a lot of projects and left everything half-done:
    -Global menu/HUD: doesn't work reliably and not in all applications, a lot of hacks and workarounds
    -Dash/lenses: slow, buggy, only bearable using search(when it works) navigation is atrocious
    -Compiz/Nux: unstable, only works with 3D accel, a LOT of new and old bugs
    -Ubuntu Software Center: slow, slow, slow

    Will they squander the donation money writing and rewriting this garbage?
    The polish that gave Ubuntu popularity is nowhere to be found.
