Comic: On Intel Reverting Canonical’s XMir Patch

shame intel Comic: On Intel Reverting Canonicals XMir Patch

Background from Ars:

“Chris Wilson of Intel’s Open Source Technology Center, steward of the xf86-video-intel open source graphics driver for Linux, wrote on Saturday that “We do not condone or support Canonical in the course of action they have chosen, and will not carry XMir patches upstream.” He attributed this statement to “The Management,” but did not say exactly who made the decision.”


“Canonical developer Michael Hall criticized Wilson’s move on Google+, saying, “There is no reason not to accept a patch to an Xorg video driver just because it supports a competitor to Wayland.””

    Yes looking at the whole situation it now makes sense why Canonical went it’s own way.

  • Michael Hall

    Yay! Immortalized in an internet comic. My life is now complete, thanks man!
