Submission + - Wayland vs Mir: It's more about control than technology (muktware.com)

sfcrazy writes: Most of the communication Canonical has sent out to justify why they dropped Wayland focusses on the problems plaguing Wayland, including the security issues. Which doesn’t seem to be true. If we look at the IRC discussion between Wayland/X developers and a Canonical employee it turns out that none of the reasons cited on Mir wiki page are valid and the one reason that's missing from the wiki is about CLA and control. Canonical wanted complete control of the project instead of 'collaborating' with Wayland. But that reason would make them look bad.

What is Canonical up to? Why are they manipulating everything?
