Comment Re:Backwards compatibility is not a right (Score 1) 292

To call this backwards compatibility, there bluetooth would need to have been replaced by something else as a headset standard. It hasn't. It's the latest thing there is, and Sony does not support it.
WIRED headsets is backwards compatibility. Who even uses wired headsets in the living room!?

Because I just downloaded the lastest snapshot of X and want to build it. I only care about every specific line if something breaks (to report it). I probably won't understand most of what it's doing anyway.

Comment Not really an Open Source development (Score 1) 108

It's funny, but it seems their development model isn't really open source, they just plan to release the source when they're done.
Mind you, I'm not saying they're lying. They never stated their development model was open source.

What's the big difference?
An open source development model means the source is open from day 0, both for contributions, testing, etc, etc, etc.
This is actually a closed development (ie: behind closed doors), which later gets published.
The quality of the end result of both development models varies greatly.

I don't think that's the actual goal. The goal is to maintain Ozone-* as middleware between chromium and *, so they don't need to rewrite each feature for X11, Wayland, Mir, etc.
In truth, since development times SHOULD shrink, this may free up devs to work on other features that make the browser run faster - or not.
