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?

I've had exactly the opposite experience - the Linux packages just seem to work. For example, we bought an Epson WF-7510 two weeks go. Epson's website listed 7 drivers for vsriants of Windows (XP, Vista/7, 8, 32-bit, 64-bit), 3 drivers for Macs, and 1 for Linux.

Worked fine on 3 different Linux machines.

I must be the luckiest guy in the world...
