Also, I noticed recently that Intel has been working on getting MeeGo running on Wayland which I'm really looking forward to..Is there any updates to this? Does Intel have MeeGo running on Wayland yet?
I know Canonical has been getting a lot of flak for praising Wayland above X, even from people within the Linux community The reality is that Wayland and similar (OpenGL ES 2.0) is going to be the future for Linux desktops, and Intel is already there with driver support and MeeGo...
I've found it a little disheartening that so many people in the Linux
community do not understand the need to replace the 25 year old design
that X has with something like Wayland, but they'll come around
eventually. WebOS, Android, Mac OS X, ( and hopefully soon both MeeGo and Ubuntu Unity) all those users are running Linux without X, so it's pretty much just the Linux Desktop users that
are still running X.
It's always great to see companies that are staying a couple steps ahead in the evolution of Linux Desktop software and if there's any two companies that are doing it really well today, it's Intel and Canonical with their support for Wayland. Even if it draws in a lot of criticism and negativity from people who never look far enough into the future, it's important to just keep on moving forward..
yeah, Great. I am using Intel with config The 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor family delivers smart
performance and built-in visuals for a visibly better PC experience. The
new image of smart performance has arrived.
Intel Intel was distinguished by its ability to make semiconductors, and its primary products were static random access memory
(SRAM) chips. Intel's business grew during the 1970s as it expanded and
improved its manufacturing processes and produced a wider range of products, still dominated by various memory devices.
I don't think it's just the back doors he's worried about. It's the principle that all of the hardware should be working in the interest of the consumer. Obviously, hardware that has been purpose built for a third party's exclusive use (and correct me if it's of any significant use to other developers outside the entertainment industry) does not work in the interest of the consumer. In fact, from a bird's eye view of the whole DRM setup, Intel Insider will do nothing to challenge the population that's accustomed to getting copies without paying for them. While I know of nobody who casually copies discs and content themselves, everyone certainly knows how to turn to their trusted geek friends to do free copies for them, and these geek friends maneuver around mass produced DRM with agility. Intel might know this already, but Insider was just a gesture to get Hollywood to release content for a system whose useful life will end shortly (just as CSS, AACS, BD+, and numerous other content protection systems have). And that's just how many tech.-aware consumers probably feel.
I'm a software developer, so I value hardware features like this differently. If Insider is useable through some API for my own developments, I'd gladly welcome it; otherwise, it's just wasted die space that I've paid for and will never use.

Now if Intel went and put some hardware in their chip that handled existing tech such as implementing Microsoft Silverlight in hardware without OS support libraries, so that it could run hardware accelerated Silverlight on any OS.... Now that would be immediately useful to end-users, but fat chance of that ever happening..
I wonder if that Intel "Insider" technology could work inside of HTML5. If so, it could still be relevant on every OS (Mac OS X / Linux / Windows) as hardware accelerated decryption...
Great to have you here ,
Just got the nuc and if I will have an issue putting the system together I know who to ask.
I would have constructed the unit a little different maybe with the os and the ram all ready installed.
That would have saved all the trouble and make more laymen buy the computer even so the unit will be a little pricy.
