    Default Developer Offers Kickbacks For Wayland Alternative

    Phoronix: Developer Offers Kickbacks For Wayland Alternative

    In an attempt to promote his Wayland fork and gain influence, the lead developer was offering monetary kickbacks to highlight his forked Wayland and Weston code-bases...

    While this is still in the beginning it might prove useful now that Kristian Hogsberg announced that he will be working on Mir after he accepted a position at Canonical (anounced it today at the ML). I don't see an bright future for wayland without Kristian.

    I'm not so sure about that, seeing as how Mark Shuttleworth just left Canonical to join Apple. Without Mark's money, I don't see Mir going anywhere too fast.

    You know, I hate it when people only get part of the story...
    If you would have cared to read the rest of the tweet Mark said he was "taking the Ubuntus[sic] communities with him to Nirvana...". I assume "Nirvana" refers to Apple, though I suppose he could be referring to the news of the reunion of eponymous early 90's band after the reappearance of Kurt Cobain (damn, that was an amazing prank he pulled...full props to him).

    I just checked over the ML and there is no such information.

    I looks like FUD to me.

    I hate April Fools'. It's difficult enough to determine what's true vs. what's supposed to be ironic / sarcastic / etc. without this.

    I suspect this Northfield article is true though.

    Stop confusing people. It was posted on the private wayland mailing list. It has nothing to do with the date.
