    Reminds me of those cars that hide the door handles, locks, and gear shifter.

    I would say the progress is quite good. Buggy, but they've got everything working at least. I'm sure the flickering issue will be resolved soon.

    That said; I'm still waiting for Wayland; Screw Mir.

    Obvious troll is obvious. (ps. don't bother responding, cause this is the only comment you'll get out of me).

    What you actually wanted to say is: Hey, a flickering version of Unity running on Mir, maybe we will see a phone with it next year, while we will see Wayland phones earlier.
    But you can't admit that Wayland phones will be out before Ubuntu phones, since you are a dumb troll.

    I felt the exact same way when I first saw it. Sure the flickers caught my attention, but not as much as how responsive and nice looking Ubuntu Touch actually was on top of Mir. I've been against Mir since its public announcement, but I must say I'm actually pretty impressed with what they got so far in this instance. Also the Ubuntu Touch interface actually looks great in terms of layout and design, I like it. They got some good UI people for this.

    Just wish they didn't put so much man-power into fragmenting the community.

    I can only fully agree with that.

    Since when are self-appointed upstreams "the community"?

    It's very buggy, but it seems MUCH smoother than the demos at CES, where it would freeze for a sec or so between changing screens. Mir seems to be shaping up great in terms of performance (other than the bugs so far).

    I actually flashed back to Android as I needed eBook reading, but I found myself wanting to do the gestures from Ubuntu-Touch.

    The Ubuntu-Touch gestures are intuitive and simplified, which meets the KISS principle and the Zen style that Steve Jobs would love. The only gripe I have is the 'back' process isn't fast, in that you usually need to swipe up for base menu and then press the back button if it's there. I would also like to close programs faster than holding down for period on an open apps icon displayed in the apps area.

    I think there is too much bias toward Canonical from those that are protecting their smaller projects. It's about time to give credit were due.
