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?

One man's fragmentation is another man's versatility. Linux was always about choice. Coming up with ONE Linux to fight the ONE Windows was never a realistic thing. You would have to have one corporation controlling it all with a big ass campus like Microsoft's and go back in time to erase the early maneuverings of Bill to get the OEMs onboard.
