        Hey! Why would you want to work with that idiotic linux community to create something, when you can just copy all the code and use it for your very own thing with an awesome CLA around it? Man, you so dont understand how Canonical works!!!!!!!!11111

            We actually do understand. Canocial was scared that Wayland wasn't going anywhere so they started to create Mir, then Wayland 0.85 came out and they decided to save face and keep course even though there obviously was no reason.

              In all honesty though, competition is good... if Mir ever get to compete (get released in time). I mean the ideal scenario is that Mir could improve Wayland (on certain aspects) and vice versa. Just being positive here.

                It's a nice theory, but i put my chips on the fact that Canonical suffers from the 'Not created by us' syndrome...
                The only thing i believe they kept going just to save face is Unity. They actually tried to contribute to Gnome 2 and usually very good stuff. But it took ages for something to make it upstream, and then Gnome 3 came out...

                    Competition only works if there are two or more solutions that are adapted by different parties. The problem is, the only party that wants Mir is Canonical, everyone else, even the non-Unity Ubuntu flavors, are rooting for Wayland.
