    Haha!
    Wayland Chrome for Ubuntu. I know that most of the Ubuntu derivatives uses/will use the Wayland protocol for their displayservers, it just kinda seems a little like a slap in Canonicals face, if it doesn't work with Mir :P

    Canonical will have to build a Mir backend for Ozone in the future. But meanwhile, this is awesome!

    Damn these journalists!
    It's not a release, it's a preview release, big difference implied. Still awesome news.

    Yeah, Firefox and especially LibreOffice will take years, the latter might take 5+ years since it's got lots legacy code and mentality from the 90'.

    Yet they have been consitently releasing a browser that uses far less memory than Chrome ever since v21, they also push for open internet standards such as ASM.js rather than NIH solutions such as NaCl, so I wouldn't be sayng that they have a 'mentality from the 90's'.
