    You said nonsense, you confuse SUSE with openSUSE which are different things, I was talking about openSUSE which by default set KDE, and officially supports Kde, Gnome and Xfce.

    The linked 'CLA' Wikpedia Article states:

    The contributor continues to own the copyright in the contribution, with full rights to re-use, re-distribute, and continue modifying the contributed code, allowing them to also share that contribution with other projects."[6]
    1. that ist not very restrictive
    2. any contributor still owns the copyright
    3. you can still fork and do whatever you like, it might just not get accepted "upstream"

    The plan behind "Project Harmony" is pretty good, because the GPL is partially lacking on some related points. The company where I'm working is developing and supporting a piece of software licensed as GPLv2. It would have been nice if we were able to relicense to GPLv3, but we're not able to do that, because of old contributions.

    What's it with Canonical and trying to pretend they don't say things such as when they were going to drop multilib support, then said they didn't say that despite the words being on their blog.

    Why should they develop/fix other DE/WM? Do you pay those developers on daily basis, that they should work on what you like? Do you expect, that others would do as you whistle, so you can benefit of it for free?

    Some FOSS lives out of good will of developers/companies, and not because consumer people want to have things for free,..

    Gli altri gusti sono principalmente sforzi della comunità, quindi la qualità dipende dalla comunità corrispondente. Canonico consente l'uso dell'infrastruttura canonica come specchi e così via e parti del nome. Cosa c'è che non va?
    Mark Shuttleworth. always says in the interviews "we have the best Kde or Mate experience etc." , from here comes my criticism. When a distribution supports a DE it should do it in the best way, unfortunately it hasn't been the case for years. Until a few years ago a Canonical employee worked full time on Kde, today it is no longer the case. It is not enough to put the packages in the repositories to officially support something ... openSUSE officially only supports Kde, Gnome and Xfce and all these DE get attention, with upstream fixes.

    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.
    There is no CLA, its licensed as GPL. You’re just making stuff up because you hate Canonical.

    The minute the company was founded? If they spent money to pay developers to work on desktops that they don’t even use, I would think that they had gone mad.
