    Can you tell me about "the benefits"? Even though the performance is not a problem anymore (on Intel, we should check if that's valid with radeon and nouveau too), does it come with any reason to use it instead pure X.org? It is still an extra layer of bugs (not intended as a criticism, every software contains bugs), so I expect a real benefit from using it.

    This news is just wonderful. I was doubtful 13.10 was going to be useful for gaming and thought we would have to wait until 14.04, but this takes my doubts away.

    XMir performance hit gone, SteamOS, and NVidia helping Nouveau developers. What a day.

    What benefits are those, again? Still, good to see that they've at least got performance back up to par.

    Good on Canonical, but these tests need to be given with AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards as well :P

    I feel like wayyyy too many people are confusing XMir with Mir at this point. That really needs to be fixed...
    XMir == X
    They are pretty much one in the same (XMir is X running on top of Mir). With "composite bypass" for fullscreen OpenGL applications, of course the performance would be similar.

    What I want to see is the performance for HD movies and such (windowed and fullscreen), as that is what I do with my computer, not games

    I don't get the hate on Ubuntu just because of the Mir thing. I loved Unity until 12.04 when they completely destroyed it's performance on my computer...

    For fullscreened movies wouldn't we expect the window manager to use overlays/composite bypass?

    You don't? Then you must be wilfully ignorant, because the reasons for the Mir controversy have been explained on these forums for a billion times by dozens of people now.

    Just because dozens of people repeat the same fallacious statements over and over does not give their arguments more weight. Most of the time those dozen people just sound bitter and/or crazy.

    Pot calling the kettle black. Despite most of your FUD being disproved time and time again, like the good shill you are,you stick to your agenda infecting every thread you can with your verbal diarrhea
