continue with controversial issues with Intel as co-star to make matters worse, although in this case the story is not as dramatic as I just told you … Except for Canonical, of course. And the XMir support in Intel drivers we announced last week, has been rejected by the chip giant.
As we read, the top brass of the driver development team for Intel Open Source Linux Canonical have given what we understand popularly as “across the mouth parts”: “We do not join or support to Canonical the course of action they have chosen, and we will not make type patches upstream to XMir “they say.
No doubt this is a blow for Canonical’s strategy towards Mir who, we assume, expect to have, if not support, self understanding by people like Intel, to include their patches on branch development officer .
Not so, and by the words of a developer of Ubuntu on Google+, “the short term, we’ll take care of Ubuntu patches, and any other distro you want to use Mir / XMir …”. Sounds a little sketchy that the “short-term”, right? What if the medium to long term remain without support?
course, this is an issue that must strive Canonical, if you want your new experience with Ubuntu work. That is the price they have to pay for wanting to lead the development their own components, is what they have unilateral decisions.
But is it fair what Intel has done? “Do not do your best open source project sinking another open source project,” complains Ubuntu developer said.
