Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Mir, Ubuntu's in-progress replacement for the X Window System, is being used internally at Ubuntu developer Canonical and will be available to all users in the next version of the operating system. Mir was announced in March, with Canonical saying that a new display server is needed to power the Unity interface across desktops, phones, and tablets." Anyone here experience with Mir? Is it any good? any downsides?

More fragmentation ... yippie!

Kubuntu and Xubuntu won't be using Mir.


Well, to be honest GNU/Linux is only following UNIX footsteps.

Some of us, me included, already went through this before Linus even imagined writing Linux.
