Intel rejection of Ubuntu’s Mir patch forces Canonical to go own way

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Quote: An Intel developer who oversees the company's open source graphics driver has pulled support for Mir, the display server that Canonical is building to replace the X window system. 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. (HowTos)
