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.

Going forward I expect almost every new API out of MS to use WinRT.


Doesn't look like WinRT/Metro is really taking off on the desktop quite the way they hoped it would. So you reckon they'll toss that to the side and 'bet the company' on something else for Windows 9? If not, when are we getting fully-functional winRT versions of MS Office and Visual Studio? THAT is when I'll know that they're really serious.
