X11, Window Managers Intel on Ubuntu's XMir:

We do not condone or support Canonical in the course of action they have chosen, and will not carry XMir patches upstream.

Ubuntu has to do virtually all its work on Xmir drivers by itself. No one else supports it.

If I had to fathom a guess, I'd be guessing its because everyone else is backing Wayland at the moment,


Who is everyone else?
Apparently AMD have stated they won't be supporting Wayland. This leaves Intel who is, and Nvidia who haven't said yet. If Nvidia do support Wayland I guess their sales will go up while AMD's fall, but only in small amounts which don't matter to them I suppose.
