X11, Window Managers Intel on Ubuntu's XMir:

We do not condone or support Canonical in the course of action they have chosen, and will not carry XMir patches upstream.

Ubuntu has to do virtually all its work on Xmir drivers by itself. No one else supports it.

Not saying I support it but it isn't any different than what Google did with Android which is also Linux deep under but not compatible with any distro and yet people like to say Linux now rules because Android does.

Yep, that's pretty much Ubuntu's problem in a nutshell: it's in that no-man's land where it's just successful enough to make Linux fanboys bitter & resentful, but not successful enough that they'll brag about it or try to assume undue credit for Canonical's achievements.
