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?

However, I think I lean towards Apple on this one. They took a few good features from iOS and merged them into OSX, but the 2 are still very distinct. I don't want a phone interface on my desktop, laptop.

It's not just you. KDE arrived to the same conclusion, so they have:
- Plasma Desktop: for conventional desktop PCs and notebooks.
- Plasma Active: for all types of tablets, smartphones and touch computing devices such as settop boxes, smart TVs, home automation or in-vehicle devices.
