>...> If there is one thing I would like to happen, then that would be that nobody would replace Weston with anything else. We don't need 20 window managers, just 1 good enough one. I desperately wish this point was more widely appreciated.
> Yes, it would be if anyone had said that, but you're arguing against a strawman. Anyone who wants to work on an alternative desktop environment is more than free to do so; no-one is denying them that right.
Sure, it's not literally _denying_ the freedom to work on alternatives--that was a bit of justifiable hyperbole on my part--but the original comment was clearly disparaging the idea of developers working on anything but the "1 good enough" solution, which, if consistently applied, would include anyone working on Linux.
> However, it doesn't mean that everyone around them has to care about it, and/or pander to their needs, requests, and demands of other projects.
I agree completely. However, while we're on the subject of strawman arguments... who said anything about providing support? The original comment was simply about developing alternatives to Weston. No mention was made of any expectation of interest or "pandering" by others.
