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?

Wayland is already anointed as X11 successor because it is made by Xorg developers themselves and backed by not only Gnome, KDE, Enlightement, but also big corporate like Intel, Samsung, Red Hat and IBM. Mir already lost the battle in that department.

And, what took them so long??? You have four tech companies.

Human factors. Everyone acts if there is always 100% clarity in inter company communications.
