    that's the thing, in open source you can fork a project and call it your own.

    They could easily grab wayland's code, fork it, modify it and call it mir

    it just seems a waste of half a million dollars... wayland or google's sf, when there's good code around that people can just 'grab' why need to write things from scratch?

    Especially those that does not come from our pockets... It is very difficult to judge complex corporate decisions looking through key-hole as we do here... I think that any new project that should be greeted and supported... Only time will tell... Remember how we all (including me) were reluctant to adopt plymouth...

    It's broken depends on one machine.

    I got mir to work on nvidia GeForce 210//218 using nouveau.

    ctrl+alt+F1
    login

    then enter code:

    (sleep 5; mir_demo_client_accelerated) & mir ; kill $!

    Enter> and wait a few seconds.

    Is it just ATI and Nvidia machines you've got it working on so far?

    Still no joy here on my Intel box.

    Enough is enough.
    I don't wanna test any MIR, I just want to point your eyes to an article released on Muktware:
    Is Wayland incapable of delivering what Mir can?

    Judge for yourselves, and finally think about what could be the motivation for Canonical to create it's own display manager ?

    I have done my judging, and like Unity, I don't want to be part of it.

    I have done my judging, and like Unity, I don't want to be part of it.

    The way I see it, wayland never really came into being. All we have been doing is talking about it, yada yada ... (I even tried it way back) but it actually *did* nothing... and I experimented with it today and basically it still does nothing exept show a background that looks like an old English blanket and a Gnome_terminal in the upper left hand corner of the compositor, (so am I to continue to wait for wayland too)?

    I like Gnome3 and I had high hopes for wayland. Point is , that they both became exrtremely boring to work with. Yes, I am a Unity man , and it may sound as if i have a bias for Unity and there is good reason for that. That being, Unity is more comprehensible than most other desktops. Yes.. it has it's bad days when it is a stick in the mud .. but I can't see going any other way (and I don't mind forking over for the hard ware to run it!!) The other alternative is Windows 8 .. err.. or 7... but I just can't go back to that horror.

    Then perhaps it may be a smart idea to throw some effort into Mir.
