          There is a new interview from Thomas Vo? that will make an excellent Wayland vs. Mir flamewar but for some reason Michael hasn't posted anything yet, maybe he's busy.

            EMACS. Making all computers slow since 1976, with a good web browser, a passable mail client, innovative task switching utils, but with a poor text editor.

              PulseAudio is the best solution for Linux audio.

              Just said it.

                When I originally saw the article, their server was overloaded and didn't respond, while now too much time has passed to cover it -- plus I didn't find the comments too surprising aside from on a comedic level.

                  Here: pulseaudio should be merged into mir. The next version of emacs will support pulsemir and will depend on systemd. It will be implemented using GNU C extensions and as such will not compile with Clang.

                    Wait, wasn't Emacs an advanced text editor? Why the hell do we need an email/web browser in it?? Kinda breaks the whole "UNIX Philosophy" that so many people are butt-hurt about lately (not that anybody pays attention to it when it's a project they LIKE :P)
