    Phoronix: Why Canonical Is Using Android Drivers For Ubuntu Mir

    With Canonical's Mir Display Server for future releases of Ubuntu Linux, they are supporting Android's graphics layer and drivers rather than inventing their own solution, trying to push X.Org drivers, or demanding mobile graphics drivers modelled after the desktop Linux graphics stack. Why did they do this? Here's an explanation...

    Did the "we are working with hardware vendor for Mir's support in drivers" just become "hardware vendors are not responding our calls let's just use Android drivers instead" ?
