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?

It seems nowadays, bashing Ubuntu and Unity is the new sport.

I encountered this type of people almost daily in my linux news alert. I have hiccups of using Ubuntu, continue to receive "ubuntu internal error" dialog box every now and then. However, I need a replacement of X because it seems it is very slow compared to the graphic stack of Windows XP. So I am very excited with Wayland for sooooooooooooooooooo many years waiting for it in the form Fedora or any distro, yet it did not happened. RebeccaBlackOS? Thank you, but I need usable desktop not an experimental one. I think that RebeccaBlackOS was released only because of Canonical's announcement and roadmaps of MIR? Correct me if I'm wrong, but Wayland was developed for so long now. And now with MIR, I just want to try and use it daily. WIth more users, it can be made into a very usable state. Someone even mentioned @ the announcement of MIR that he doubts the capacity of Canonical releasing a usable display server in a very short time, made me realized that part of the motive of bashing MIR is plain jealousy.
