      This seems rather unlikely, I'd bet on 14.04 at best.

            The mobile Unity 8 shell with Mir will be avaible for the desktop as an option for Ubuntu 13.10.

            The Unity 8 desktop shell is coming with 14.04.

              I like that many of the new features I read about are the ability to test and analyze MIR while they are still developing it. One thing Canonical is doing right is doing thier due diligence to make sure MIR and Unity8 are well tested during thier development and not just tested after development. Get the bugs out now while they are easy to see and not coded around.

                But they only made a *little* more progress

                It's not hard to see that Michael really really doesn't like Mir.

                Hey Michael, how about at least trying to be objective when you talk about canonical and Mir in particular?

                  What's there to like? It's a stupid project born of pure idiocy.

                    And that's your personal opinion... who knows what will happen with it in the future. I personally think it's a waste of time and resources, however, if you are reporting on something to the general public what is appropriate is to try to be objective; unless you specifically state that it's your opinion. That's also known as 'professionalism.'
