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.

Actually, the open source drivers are not that bad now for PC use (not laptops). I have been able to play many games using Wine and natively at 30 to 60 FPS.


I should clarify that I'm not talking about their open source drivers, I'm referring to their binary drivers.

The open source drivers have to potential to work very well with the rest of the existing infrastructure (no shims, devs talk to each other)
