"Muktware: Are you also working on Tablet port of Linux Mint as Plasma Active is now running successful on devices like Nexus 7.
Lefebvre: No. We're working on making Linux Mint 15 better than Linux Mint 14 on the very same equipment we've been focused on since 2006: the PC. If we can make things better for people whose screen is tactile, we're happy to do so. If it's at the cost of frustrating desktop computer users based on the limitations of these portable devices, we're not interested."
It is most comforting to know that we as users can look forward confident that Mint will continue to be relevant to our desktop and laptop pc's.
Yess that is excellent. There's way too much of this "convergence" BS (and other related buzzwords) floating around. It's good to see someone's keeping their eyes on the prize. Do one thing and do it well.
On another note, it's good to know Clem's opinion on Mir. It'd been better if he'd have clearly expressed support for Wayland, though.
