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.

I'll admit that my "ideal" of having a huge joint venture of commercial and volunteer interests producing a truly usable and free(dom) software ecosphere were naive. It's just that the same old, same old attitude of "Winner takes it all (or dies trying)!" is the worst possible outcome.
