Phoronix: Mir Is Still Overwhelmingly A Canonical-Only Affair
While Wayland 1.4 is set to be released next month with many new features and has seen contributors from many different companies, the Mir Display Server for Ubuntu continues to be developed exclusively by Canonical...
How can one even be overwhelmed by how Canonical-only any affair is? Seriously, it's almost ridiculous how he uses rhetoric to point out how bad they are. Who are the target audience? Fans will be pissed and all others will not care.
Why would nobody care about MIR? Ubuntu is still one of the most used distro out there.
The MIR branch stinks, but it does matter because its what a lot of linux (ubuntu) users are going to use.
Sadly enough Ubuntu is my distro of choice to, although I'm eying debian as an suitable replacement when MIR gets mainlined in ubuntu.

I've seen claims about Ubuntu's alleged popularity over and over again but so far none of such claims was ever backed up by facts.

To put it simply: if Ubuntu was the only available Linux distribution I would stop using Linux.
