KDE Developers Continue To Be Frustrated With Canonical

Following Mark Shuttleworth's critical comments about those opposed to Mir and his statements being challenged, multiple KDE developers in particular have been expressing their outrage.

Aaron Seigo was the KDE developer to challenge Mark Shuttleworth to a public debate over his colorful comments regarding those opposed to Canonical's Mir Display Server for Ubuntu. Two weeks have passed since suggesting this public debate and there's still been no public response by Mark Shuttleworth, though Jono Bacon and others have commented on the matter.

With two weeks of silence, Aaron did another post to say his public debate challenge has still been ignored.

Aaron also pointed out that there's "many other great Linux based operating systems out there, ones that treat the world around them with respect (even in times of disagreement), with terrific communities around them who contribute massively to the ongoing success of Free software."

Meanwhile, Martin Gräßlin, the KDE KWin maintainer, also expressed his frustration and in part the larger "FLOSS" community.

In Martin's first post, he explained, "The last half year has been very difficult for me. I had been close to quitting my work on FLOSS several times...I do like my work on KWin and KDE, I'm enjoying it. But the broader ecosystem creates an atmosphere I do not want to work in. I used this week to reflect what happened 14 days ago and also the last half year in general and what I can do about it to not be affected like that."

In a second post of today, Martin sought to seek clarification with Canonical's Jono Bacon over earlier comments made.
