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.

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


That is only if you like an Ubuntu everywhere world and if only Ubuntu gets the brunt of the developers working in the ecosystem.

If it becomes Ubuntu OS and apps, Fedora OS and apps, OpenSUSE OS and apps, Mageia OS and apps, Arch OS and apps, etc. We'd be worse of than today where GNU/Linux still scratches the single digits n the desktop.

It is exiting in a geek kind of way, but this doesn't do anything for the much needed unification in the lower levels of Linux' plumbing.
