Update On Wayland and X11 Support

EyelessFade Re:Wayland vs X (315 comments)

If you'd bothered reading anything from their faq, you'd known that they plan on using OpenGL and was going to, but they can't yet because it draws inn all X11 libs. AKA GLX. And network transparency will come, they even say so in TFV. "It's trivial"

Mozilla Debates Supporting H.264 In Firefox Via System Codecs

EyelessFade Re:WebM (320 comments)

Companies that won't support H.264: Mozilla

And Opera

Companies that won't support WebM: Many...

Which? Microsoft and Apple? So to on each side then.. And guess what; Microsoft don't support h264 in IE, they just support plugins. Blah blah everybody blah blah.

zero devices and a microscopic share of the whole video format ecosystem but think the whole world will bend to their will for WebM.

Yeh google should remove all support for h264 in android. Oh thats 60% of smart phones. woops. And remove flash and h264 from youtube. Should make webM relevant then. How many sites do you use which have videos?

EyelessFade Re:Try again.. (276 comments)

And they don't. Unlike Apple you can actually install whatever you want from wherever you want. Download it from SourceForge and copy it onto your phone, and it'll run. But google can and will pull something they don't like away from *their own* store.

EyelessFade Re:It should have compelling features (179 comments)

It may, but since Linux has been time driven rather then feature driven for the last 6 years it shouldn't be so. Also 3.0 marks Linux 20 year Anniversary

FSF Announces Support For WebM

EyelessFade Re:Riding coattails! (333 comments)

So why did we go for h264 then? When it came there was only MPEG2 hardware chips. In your line of thought no change should ever take place. Why buy TV when there is nothing on. That was the big question in the 40- and 50s. And There *are * hw chips for webm. And more is being produced. In 2 years you can bet every phone have it. Hopefully by then no one will even remember h264.
