    Default Chromium Ported To Mir Display Server, Based On Wayland Code

    Phoronix: Chromium Ported To Mir Display Server, Based On Wayland Code

    Robert Carr at Canonical has ported Google's Chromium web-browser to Mir. The "Mir-Ozone" component allows Chromium to run natively on Mir, which in turn is based on Wayland code...

    .. begs the question - which parts of Mir are original?

    Even though an achievement, have they got eBook's reading yet? Also a OpenStreetMaps apps would be needed too.

    they wrote abstraction layer that allows chromium and thus chrome to be ported to an external windowing system. but, i'm sure you already knew that.

    By now most readers will be familiar with the excellent work by Intel and contributors in creating Ozone Wayland[6]. Initial investigation in to Ozone Mir quickly lead to the observation that a large amount of code would need to be duplicated between them. In order to try to improve this situation, we have instead based our Ozone Mir work off of Ozone Wayland. Ozone Mir creates a new set of interfaces on the GPU process side abstracting the idea of utilizing an external EGL compositor. This results in a layer much more similar to conventional toolkit porting layers, and we hope that one day something similar can be used by all ports of Ozone to an external EGL windowing system[7].

    From one side, it's ok.
    From another side the history repeat itself: take the wayland code -> change two lines -> rebrand as Mir-related work -> announces that "XYZ can now work on Mir".
    Then someone will jump in the forum to say "look, the Mir devs achieved the same result with 1/5 of the time needed by the wayland (not-so-smart) devs, ah ah".

    why not
    let other do the heavy tasks and then port it! and it works just compare between the two presentation
    and ozone wayland developers are indeed so smart! they develop it using Ubuntu they know Ubuntu just works and Fedora is not development-quality product

    Does that really matter. Aren't we wanting a Linux solution for mobiles devices that isn't tied to Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo, etc...
