    Phoronix: Shuttleworth On Mir: "A Fantastic Piece of Engineering"

    Mark Shuttleworth has written a third blog post today. After he started blogging to come to his defense on Ubuntu, he's written a third post that largely is defending Canonical's position on developing the Mir Display Server and the feelings right now by derivatives like Kubuntu and Xubuntu...

    Yes he is, because Lennart's interests are purely his own. Plus he actually has the talent to mostly back up a lot of his assholery.

    I have no problem with the LAS guys and I think they usually do a good and entertaining show, but this time I think they failed to properly cover the issue. None of the real issues about Mir were addressed.

    But what can you expect - they're sponsored by System76, they wouldn't want to say anything that would upset their sponsor too much, and System76 wouldn't want to say anything that would upset Canonical too much, being as their business depends on selling their product.

    I don't think anyone is trying to use Lennart for a basis of argumentation on this point... Aaron Seigo maybe, Martin Graesslin maybe, Adam or Rahul maybe, etc... Lennart? no...

Passing mentions at beast. Pretty biased overall especially with the guy who uses Ubuntu to make money... Yeah no bias there. Nice try, try again.

    I couldn't agree more. These guys are crazy.
    Unfortunately, they also seem to have some influence on a not so small audience.

    If you don't want to watch the full thing, give them a try here:

    Jupiter Broadcasting had a great show and talked about the Mir and Wayland debate and they put it pretty clear.

    It is because that's what threads are for, you know, discussing/reading subject matter that the thread was created for.
    Anyway no "biggy" now that the thread's almost dead, but if the thread remains active, hopefully it stays on-topic going forward.

    You like that one, good stuff....

    Now now, no Neckbeard tag-teaming, it was a perfectly warranted/legit protest, time to crawl back into Mum's basement now

    Otherwise we might end up with something similar to Android on the Linux desktop, which I am not looking forward to :/

    Ah now that's more like it, more postings like this is the way to go folks (or counter points of course).
