    Phoronix: Xfce-Based Xubuntu Will Not Ship XMir For 13.10

    The Xubuntu team, the derivative of Ubuntu Linux focused around shipping the Xfce desktop environment, has decided against using XMir for their 13.10 release after extensive testing...

      Xubuntu is a fantastic alternative to Ubuntu for those prefer a more classical/simple environment and/or a superlight experience. XMir or XWayland wouldn't be a logical move as long as there is performance impact. Xorg (probably for last time) is a good choice for 13.10

      PS i don't think XMir and XWayland will have so big performance impact in the future. They are under heavy development and optimization is totally missing. We must not forget that they are created as a transition solution to Mir and Wayland.

            I'm glad to read this. This means I've got more time with Xubuntu.

              No, that's only Xmir. Which is why it's totally idiotic.

              XWayland is meant to offer backwards compatibility to legacy X apps (including GTK2, Qt3/4, Motif, etc). It is not meant to run whole X DE's on top of it. Because that would be unbelievably stupid. Almost as stupid as what Canonical is doing with Xmir right now.

                    Why the hell are you posting page hits as accurate distribution usage numbers?
                    Are you retarded or something?

                        It's good that they don't sacrifice performance and stability for something that's "new and shiny". Xubuntu is an excellent gaming distro, and they'd better keep it that way.

                              You did when you posted it, and your very, very poor English skills don't help the situation.
