      That you can run a Mir session inside a Mir session.
      For example having a full desktop inside a window.

        What's the use-case? Is it just for testing and developing DE's?

          Providing a flicker-free user experience right from the moment Ubuntu boots without noticable "black screens" when switching from the boot logo to the login screen or to the user session. (like OS X does since 10.7).

            I think this is useful for emulators, which app developers need to build apps for Ubuntu Phone. What I don't understand is why would you need that on Android if you are going to be developing your apps on desktop Ubuntu anyway.

                Emulator for developing Ubuntu Touch Apps, Developing DEs.
                I used this on X one time when I wanted to run Spotify (wine)
                in a separate session so that I could extract playing info
                before the Linux version with MPRIS was available.

                  From my understanding this is Mir running on top of Android, aka Ubuntu On Android.
