X11, Window Managers Intel on Ubuntu's XMir:

We do not condone or support Canonical in the course of action they have chosen, and will not carry XMir patches upstream.

Ubuntu has to do virtually all its work on Xmir drivers by itself. No one else supports it.

"How Red Hat be jealous considering its biggest contributions in the Linux ecosystem especially the kernel Canonical heavily depends on?


Because Ubuntu has made inroads in the sector where RH failed spectacularly and never made a dent, namely desktop? (No Fedora doesn’t count and it's pretty much also a failure in this sector)
"

To be fair with Fedora, that is the first distro I used as a mail server. And it has many unique technologies. The only problem is that it becomes obsolete after 18 months of usage. So I default my desktop to Ubuntu L.T.S. for practical reasons. Ubuntu having MIR is not a problem for users, its a problem for other distributions, since we still be using Ubuntu on business desktops. I will be watching Fedora from time to time.
