    Come on Michael, I don't mind the occasional click bait, but you're better than this.
    For an established and stable product, a week without commits might be perfectly fine, but Mir is fundamentally unestablished, incomplete, and unstable. If it were under active development, there would be commits every weekday at least.

    Not really, it's not that they are bad. It's just that they are inexperience with something as large scale as X.org, and it showed really... Mir ended up repeating the same mistakes, particularly when it some to buffer management.
    Truth is that if they simply drift into wayland development now, they should be wiser. Which is always a plus.

    I think he meant something more like:

    Just think all this started because people didn't like gnome 3 so bad (insert comma here) people started making their own desktops.

    All this started because of Google's Android success, and someone said hey X is not good for phones lets made something good for phones

    And now instead of traditional desktop we have or strive to phonoided Desktops Someone wanna Google's and Microsoft's successes in the single metaphor you know

    They took on too much. They could have done the phone and Unity 8, but taking on Mir was too much.
    I would assume there would have been some design limitations/challenges by going with a Wayland server instead of Mir, but Mir should have died off in the early days when it was clear that no one was interested in using it besides canonical.

    What a way to waste (presumably) good developers.

    Mir isn't a desktop, your argument is invalid.

    ? The article is not about unity its about mir. So if canonical would have opposed to gnome 3 they would made unity based on wayland. But they opposed to wayland. So gnome is no reason for mir at all.

    To the Topic: So I understand that this is hard for the people involved, but if you choose a job that goal is stupid you might have to pay the price to be unemployed in the future. Now we are in a place that we try to find reasons to keep mir alive for some jobs apperently. Please keep the normal stupidity of business and politics out of opensource projects. Like people try to attack linus on the kernel mailinglist for not PC language.

    Its absolute fine if you work for horrible companies like Microsoft and be PC, but if you create something important empowering for humanity as the linux kernel or GNU and you are not PC about it, you are horrible.

    I am shure Microsoft is 100% femnazi compatible, but stop focusing so much on the means and start focus on the ends.

    Mir was a bad goal, so it never should have existed in the first place, keeping it alive so that some people get not unemployed and searching for justifications for that makes no sense.

    If you care about people that get unemployed dont try to create bullshit-jobs for them so you can excuse to pay them money for living just pay them money for living (universal basic income)
