    Default Unity 7 X11 Running Together With Unity 8 Mir

    Phoronix: Unity 7 X11 Running Together With Unity 8 Mir

    A new video out of Canonical is showing off the Unity 7 desktop with an X11 session running side-by-side with a Unity 8 Mir-powered session...

    Question But does it run on Wayland?

    Who cares about Mir, does it run on Wayland?

    I bet it wont run on a protocol.
    The question is, will Mir fully implement the Wayland protocol?

    i think implementing unity as wayland compositor would make more sense than implementing mir on wayland. why stuck layers when you can do it directly?

    but, hey... that's just me being wayland fan so it probably makes my comment biased.

    Lack of knowledge again. If you want to use wayland protocol, you have to create a compositor from scratch. So you have to write Mir or sth like this to implement this protocol. It's like saying: Why bother about writing browser? Let's run webapps on HTTP!

    Hum,
    Did I miss something or is this video just about VT switching between Unity 7 and Unity 8 ?

    The drum patterns are just too loud and the voice is too quiet. Very amateurish in my opinion.

    again? and... how does native wayland compositor differs from what you said it would be needed? running mir on wayland as it is, would probably need to be done in same way as x11, which adds extra layer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Th...and_glamor.svg

    but, yea i might be wrong. never cared about unity
