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?

That is true, but nobody else is going to use it, not even the distros built on it.

Distros didn't switch from XFree86 to overnight either. It's the first public release so I don't really expect anyone else to use it yet.
