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.

"Mir (Russian: ΠœΠΈΡ€, IPA: [ˈmΚ²ir]; lit. Peace or World) was a space station that operated in low Earth orbit from 1986 to 2001, at first by the Soviet Union and then by Russia." (Wikipedia.)
