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.

Ever tried redhat linux 8.0? That's about 12 years ago. It's, AFAIK, one of the best linux desktop. Quite easy installation, quite beautiful, and quite useful, for early linux desktop. Its free.

And then, they abandon that ship to focus on RHEL. Redhat linux then succeeded by Fedora, but fedora quality worse than their predecessor.
CMIIW.
