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.

Just a couple weeks ago they were recomending everyone use Python and GTK to develop their "apps" and now they're pulling that rug out again.

Sounds a lot like MS, doesn't it? Seems like every 3-5 years, MS is 'betting the company' on some new technology.
