    they can't do that as they will lose all the credibility they (still?) have.

    14.04 is going to be LTS and they can either choose to use it as a test bed for Xmir/mir or they can simply do what they did for 13.10 and simply revert back to using xorg like a bunch of wusses.
    Would it be possible to have a switch with Xmir/mir/unity8 or xorg/unity7 kind of like what they did with 12.04 with unity2d or unity3d at login ?

I liked KDE before they did all that Plasma crap, and Gnome before they moved to their Tablet interface. XFCE is pretty much the same, that's the way I like it.

        You can switch between Xorg and XMir in 13.10 but that requiers editing a config file and then restarting LightDM. I'm sure if they really wanted it could be made into a separate sessions for LightDM.

        They also plan to add Unity 8 on Mir session in 13.10 but that's only plan. This version of Unity has only phone and tablet form factors and it's a work in progress.

          You don't beta test a product with an official release. This is why the Linux desktop is such a cluster-f.

          I have a weird idea. How about if nobody releases a damn thing until it's 100% tested and working and not a fubar'd pile of crap? It can really save a lot of users a ton of headaches and at the same time improve a company's credibility.

                He's not particularly bright, so don't expect too much.

                  Canonical is known for releasing Beta or even Alpha Software is most all of it's "official releases" even most of it's installers are broken in some way Canonical makes the Linux desktop just look bad but lets hope Tanglu and Steam OS Redeem Linux to the World user base!!!
