    For gods sake, GNOME or KDE should have done this, or some other organization , NOT canonical. It will just fall apart this way, like every other thing Canonical touched.

      Have a look at the last paragraph of the article :


      "Aethercast is separate from other work being done on Miracast support for the Linux desktop like OpenWFD, MiracleCast, and the new Miracast support being worked on by Intel with their Linux graphics driver developers."

        go and make your own open source alternative then.
        Maybe you can prove you can do it better than just blaming and shitstorming the ones who actually try it.

          Is there a single alternative which already actually work?
          ## VGA ##
          AMD: X1950XTX, HD3870, HD5870
          Intel: GMA45, HD3000 (Core i5 2500K)

            thank christ, someone needs to make a definitive open source version that actually works. to those saying "not canonical" if it's open source who gives a shit

            networked screens are an awesome idea that no one seems to care about for some reason, except for a couple of proprietary solutions which don't work with each other and in general are a pain in the arse to get going.

              if it's opensource what is the difference?, is better a project by a non company who never ends?

                Because one very big major reason: Canonical's Contributor Licence Agreement

                That's more than enough to avoid Canonical software like hell. There has been lots of controversy about CLAs, other corporately owned projects follow this shitty community and parasitical way too.
