    Default Mir Now Has DPMS Power Management Support

    Phoronix: Mir Now Has DPMS Power Management Support

    Support was committed to Mir on Friday for handling Display Power Management Signaling (DPMS) so that monitors will be able to enter down their power-down/sleep state...

    First we have Display Power Management Signaling, then Display Power Management Support, when in actuality it is Don't Provoke Mir's Shenanigans.

    If Canonical did things better than half-assed no one would complain.

    If canonical made the perfect software with the purest of open source licence licence in the world and upstreamed it all... people would still bitch. Lets not kid ourselves here.

    That's somewhat true, but there has been a lot of reason behind the hate of certain things canonical does. With Mir in particular, they basically just made something new because they didn't invest enough research time in wayland and for whatever reason, wanted a different license. That's not helping out the community, so the community gets pissed. Then there's things like pushing software on us that wasn't ready yet, such as pulseaudio. PA is fine today, but canonical pushed it way too early. Unity is another thing - nobody asked for it, yet they pushed it on everyone anyway. I personally think unity is a fine interface, but not so much for productive purposes, as it's a little slow and clumsy for switching between multiple tasks.

    People don't like change for the sake of change, and they especially don't like it when their experience worsens because of it. Mir as of right now is overall worse than wayland, and while it's catching up REALLY fast, the point is canonical could have put all that manpower into developing wayland.

    Unity is geared towards productivity and fast task switching, i.e. the exact opposite direction of where Gnome is heading.

    You are right, I forgot to add IMHO.
