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 think that RebeccaBlackOS was released only because of Canonical's announcement and roadmaps of MIR? Correct me if I'm wrong...

You're wrong.

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.

Sure, they can create a display server, but whether it will be usable beyond simple demos is yet to be seen. It should be noted that the developers behind Wayland are far more experienced than those doing Mir.

The reasons for bashing Mir is simply the way Canonical went about developing it and the rather poor justifications they used and they way they initially bashed Wayland (and getting it mostly wrong).
