    DoMiNeLa10 Your bias is not Canonical’s needs. Canonical need to innovate and compete. That’s very different than distribute more desktops than they can support.

      Since when are their efforts commercial first? They simply don't understand what they're working with, and they are out of touch. Normies despise of GNOME as well, and I've seen them flock to KDE for whatever reason.

        DoMiNeLa10 You assume Canonical is stupid because you disagree. There’s no reason to discuss any further. You can keep talking and Canonical will keep walking.

          They care a little bit to the degree that they use other desktops to push their semi-proprietary CLA'ed shit. Mate for Mir (making sure they won't adopt fully FOSS wlroots) and KDE for Snap (they sponsor KDE e.V. and then suddenly KDE Neon decided to pursue Snap exclusively and mentioning Snap packages prominently in announcements).

          As for this topic: As long as they don't add a way to disable two-finger horizontal scrolling, it's uninteresting.

            X.org is dead. Investing in gnome-shell can be seen as some investment in wayland, and thats worthwhile.

            I don't see where canonical pressed the mate guys into mir. I don't even see canonical investing in mir anymore. Mir is also GPLv3, which is for my understanding FOSS.

            That's a totally different topic.

              Canonical is only using GNOME because they had to choose a desktop after dumping Unity, and GNOME was easier to work with. If they actually cared about GNOME, they wouldn't spend their time trying to make it look like Unity and pushing crap like Snap when the GNOME Community has fully embraced Flatpak.

                To contribute to Mir, as far as I remember you have to sign a CLA. So Canonical can relicense the code to proprietary at any moment.

                  ... and then they stop writing that offer the best Kde, Xfce etc. experience. Canonical stop lying and only support what they can support!

                    That makes no real sense to me. The project in on Github, anybody can fork Mir anytime and create Pull Requests. I found no proof of any specifi, restrictive CLA.

                    I really didn't get your point.

                      All the flavors of Ubuntu are officially supported!
