Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth: "I simply have zero interest in the crowd who wants to be different. Leet. 'Linux is supposed to be hard so it's exclusive' is just the dumbest thing that a smart person could say." He's right. Lots of interesting insights in this blog post - I may not agree with everything Ubuntu does, but at least it's doing something.

If Mir is a mistake, fine, let them make their mistake. If some snobby developers from Wayland or X (who obviously don't have an agenda *rolls eyes*) think its crappy code, then so be it.

Sure, but there is no reason why one cannot state an opinion why they're making a mistake, or point out that they claimed to support Wayland, while at the same time working on a completely different solution in secret.

It should also be noted that people would respond more warmly if Canonical had previously demonstrated the chops to do a massive infrastructure project such as this. There is always a first time, I guess...

Continue doing what you're (Wayland/X devs) doing, whatever it is you're doing.

That is what the Wayland devs said. What they didn't appreciate was Canonical dumping on their work with utter BS.
