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.

So, Intel, Red Hat, SUSE, are all backing Wayland. Great - I'm looking forward to seeing if it meets my needs (and hoping that if it doesn't, Xorg or Mir will be a viable option). Canonical wants to implement their own display server? Great - I'm looking forward to seeing if it meets my needs (and hoping that if it doesn't, Xorg or Wayland will be a viable option).
