+ - More From Canonical Employee On: "Why Mir?"

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Canonical Desktop and Mobile Engineer Christopher Halse Rogers explains in more detail the decision for Mir Mir as apposed to Wayland. Although Halse Rogers 'was not involved in the original decision to create Mir', he's had 'discussions with those who were'. 'We want something like Wayland, but different in almost all the details'. 'The upsides of doing our own thing — we can do exactly and only what we want, we can build an easily-testable codebase, we can use our own infrastructure, we don't have an additional layer of upstream review' In a separate post Halse Rogers answer the question: Does this fragment the Linux graphics driver space?"
