Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Canonical has today publicly confirmed that they are working on a new cross-platform displayer server for Ubuntu. Called 'Mir', the X Window Server replacement is tasked with 'enabling development of the next generation Unity'. Which, in yet another about-turn, is to be rebuilt in Qt/QML." It'll be used for all Ubuntu variants (phone, tablet, desktop), and the first version will be released come May.

It's a very good and natural thing: evolution.

I just hate it when people start screaming: no, nobody else does that, it's non-conformant, evil, etc etc.

I'd like for the so-called distributions to evolve into independent fully fledged os'es, not just another "distros".

I.e. just like Android. Nobody calls it a linux distro. And that's a good thing.

Ubuntu apps, Ubuntu desktop environment, Ubuntu desktop server, Ubuntu operating system. Nice.

And Qt. Couldn't be a much better example of a match made in heavens.
