Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Mir, Ubuntu's in-progress replacement for the X Window System, is being used internally at Ubuntu developer Canonical and will be available to all users in the next version of the operating system. Mir was announced in March, with Canonical saying that a new display server is needed to power the Unity interface across desktops, phones, and tablets." Anyone here experience with Mir? Is it any good? any downsides?

Actually they did, but only because Xorg started as a fork of the last beta of Xfree with an acceptable license. But wayland is a change on a much larger scale. And right now, gnome and kde arenĀ“t ready to use it.
