Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu

Ubuntu, the platform used in the majority of cloud deployments worldwide, today released version 16.10 with hybrid cloud operations, bare-metal cloud performance, the ability to lift-and-shift 80% of Linux VMs to machine containers, Kubernetes for world-leading process-container coordination, full container support in OpenStack, and telco-grade networking latency enhancements.

...this isn't really about the desktop anymore, is it?

I for one think Mir is good. There needs to be competition in the display server field--isn't that what we want? To prevent a second situation like X11, where there is only one solution, and it becomes long in the tooth?

The last thing to set as competition is a display manager, a much complex project that takes time to mature.

Virtually nobody outside Canonical are interested to contribute to the Mir project because it is considered as a waste of time and another attempt get control via Clause Licensing Agreement. It will be a matter of time Mir will either be yet another abandonware or converted into Wayland compositor.

A reminder is without Wayland developers doing the heavy lifting, Mir would not exist.
