Re: Mir with Proprietary Drivers

Hi Kyle - 
Hope you understand it would be inappropriate to discuss partner commitments. But, yes, what you asking is technically correct in that proprietary driver support would be required when there is no fallback.

best regards, kg

I have a quick question about the upcoming release of Mir. I know that when Ubuntu 13.10 is released, Mir will ship as the default display server, unless the user uses a proprietary driver, in which case it will fall back to X. But what happens when that fallback is removed in 14.04 LTS if AMD / Nvidia have not released proprietary drivers? Will we still be able to use the drivers they supply now? I don't think it would be possible, but am I wrong? I'm a gamer, so proprietary drivers are essential, unless the open-source drivers have an extreme overhaul.
