....blarambleblabla... "When lots of competitors attack a project on purely political grounds, you have to wonder what THEIR agenda is. At least we know now who belongs to the Open Source Tea Party And to put all the hue and cry into context: Mir is relevant for approximately 1% of all developers, just those who think about shell development. Every app developer will consume Mir through their toolkit. By contrast, those same outraged individuals have NIH’d just about every important piece of the stack they can get their hands on… most notably SystemD, which is hugely invasive and hardly justified." ...blablarambleblabla... -- Mark Shuttleworth

So yeah I am not entirely sure what he is saying there, but I think some "outraged inviduals" from "most notably systemd" just got called the "Open Source Tea Party" by Mark.

I really wonder though how we deserve such high praise. I haven't publically commented on my blog or anything on Ubuntu and Canonical in years. And I don't think I commented much about Mir either. Yes, I can tell you that Upstart is misdesigned, but that's a technical opinion, and heck, other than that I don't really care...

(Also, I think +Matthew Garrett probably posted the most relevant reviews of the Mir situation on his blog, but I find it cute suggesting he would torture the english language. I mean, knock yourself out complaining about my english, but heck, Matthew is Cambridge and shit...)
