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?

Your words. This is a corporate problem, thus why they're concerned about it, but it amounts to attempts to stifle innovation (because there's always a better way to do things) for the sake of their own convenience. There's nothing smug or narrow-minded about it. Linux's innate versatility is butting heads with their attempts to market a product. Their problem. They knew the risks when they got onboard this train.
