Whats this "early" mean?
How do you think we can get through to the anti-vaxxers?
Require mandatory vaccination. The only exemption being for children who cannot receive the vaccine for medical reasons. And if an unvaccinated child is subsequently harmed by contracting measles prosecute the parents for child endangerment.
... meanwhile on anti-vax FB pages that I have gotten into, they are having measles-parties, mumps-parties, and the like. Intentionally exposing their kids to disease.
It may be that Wayland / Weston targets Linux in the first instance (just as Linux kernel originally targeted x86 processors) but that does not preclude it from other kernels over time. If someone were to try I suspect the problem would lie less in porting Wayland / Weston and more to do with the sorry state of GPU drivers for other kernels. In the meantime, use X. I doubt it's going away any time soon.
Linux has always featured choice. Personally I dislike KDE and I am critical of it but I'm not required to use it so I don't. Nor are you required to use Wayland. Stick with X for as long as you like. Gather a core of likeminded people and produce a dist that suits your requirements. I'm sure Amish Linux will be a huge hit.
And every software is "unstable untried" until it is. I'm quite certain Wayland will have bugs in it and will fail to function in certain configurations. And those bugs will be fixed, either in Wayland itself or in the code it depends on, e.g. Mesa or display drivers. If it bothers you, don't use it until the bugs are fixed.
And what "missing features" are you talking about? Part of X's problem is it is a veritable kitchen sink of features, most of which are obsolete, inefficient or an impediment to be worked around. And that's the point - Wayland is not attempting to reimplement everything in X. I also hope you're not going to say remoting because that's the compositor's job, not Wayland's and there is a reference remoting implementation in Weston that uses RDP.
And just "some X11 developers"? The most prominent supporters of Wayland are major X11 developers who know how broken X is. Name any prominent X11 developer who is in favour of maintaining the status quo, who thinks X is perfect in its present form or can be fixed without breaking backwards compatibility or without making a complex tangle of obsolete code and extensions even more complex.
I don't see Mir as being in much competition though. Canonical have hobbled interest in it due to the restrictive licence and contributors agreement and most people regard it as divisive. I will be interested to see what the gubuntu dist do when GNOME shell is fully Wayland compatible - whether they intend to use it or if they will be constrained by Canonical and leave GNOME using X until they can port it to Mir.
The whole analysis at the list site assumed fourier spectral analysis, nysquat limits, etc.... Thats assuming linearity in the way they used them.
Nope. Can't say that I've ever encountered this on VLC on any platform.
