Parent article: A look at Mer
"What is Mer?"
After reading this, I have less of an idea than I had before. I thought it was a graphics server/layer...
"The Mer core has a "whole load of stuff" in it, but it is really just the minimal set of packages to get Qt running."
What does that mean? Anyone can run Qt on a frame buffer in an afternoon, without a graphics server. Embedded systems (you mentioned fridges) are not about "packages", generally. Finally, graphics servers that are tied to a widgets kit kind of miss the point.
