Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Canonical has today publicly confirmed that they are working on a new cross-platform displayer server for Ubuntu. Called 'Mir', the X Window Server replacement is tasked with 'enabling development of the next generation Unity'. Which, in yet another about-turn, is to be rebuilt in Qt/QML." It'll be used for all Ubuntu variants (phone, tablet, desktop), and the first version will be released come May.

Ah, but that was my point, the vendors are already supporting Android's SurfaceFlinger, Mir is somewhat/mostly? compatible from the driver stand-point, so it actually reduces complexity if it gets adopted over X and Wayland (which has almost no vendor support yet).
