    If you run bleeding edge software, prepare to be cut.

      The bug is over a month old, and a fix is in progress. Michael forgot to talk about that. Seems like he has a very selective memory.

        well this guy is a fanboi like was bo$$, he probably will call you troll and imply you don't know what you are talking about because XMir is too advanced for minds outside canonical.

        in any case this just enter in the list of "is retarded run a full screen XServer to handle 100% of the job thorugh an page flip layer because is cool for PR" and has an special mention in the category of "is retarded to put 2 graphic servers to Mortal Kombat each other to see which one handle the input events first because seems fun" and ofc gold for the "why we had to do this? explain it to me again!!! Canonical trademark"

          Your poor English and over-the-topness makes you sound just like a troll though.... huh...... have you ever considered that your projecting? It's amazing how common it is for actually trolls to claim other people are trolls. Well known troll behavior is too be-little others, label them using strawmen terms, and call anything that doesn't fit your piont of view "retarded" or claim there is a conspiracies, like "PR lies". And when others call them out, they just dig in deeper and escalate the nastiness and inappropriateness of their assaults.

            XMir isn't even a part of the 13.10 daily images. You have to install it from universe repository which isn't even enabled by default on new installations of Saucy Salamander. User testing 13.10 has to do that all before he can test XMir.

              Fedora is more bleeding edge Software then Ubuntu and you don't see Huge Security Holes in it

                actually he is a developer who has done a lot of work on input, among other things. I'd tend to think he actually knows what he is talking about on this subject ;-)
