GNOME

+ - GNOME Responds To Canonical's Mir By Rushing Wayland Support-> 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Canonical's plan to develop the Mir Display Server for Ubuntu rather than going with their original plans to adopt Wayland has been met with criticism from KDE developers that "Mir is an answer to a question nobody asked. It’s a solution to problem which does not exist." The GNOME response to Ubuntu's Mir is that they will now be rushing support for the GNOME desktop on Wayland. Over the next two release cycles they plan to iron out the Wayland support for the GNOME Shell, the GTK+ toolkit, and all GNOME packages so that by this time next year you can be running GNOME entirely on Wayland while still having X11 fall-back support."

  • So, the current Linux desktop is fragmented between, Gnome, KDE, XFCE. And Gnome is fragmented between Unity, Gnome Shell, and Cinnamon Desktop. And somehow you think Mir is going to come along and completely screw the Linux desktop?
