    Phoronix: Canonical Will Now Ship Mir By Default In Ubuntu 13.10

    Originally Canonical was planning to ship their Mir Display Server by default in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on the desktop and in Ubuntu 13.10 still be using an X.Org Server outside of mobile devices. However, it's been announced today that with Ubuntu 13.10 they will now be using Mir by default...

    Looking at this goals of Canoncial, I think it might be best for them to skip 13.10 and delay the LTS to June of 2014 or October and provide a well tested Unity 8 on Mir then.

What I understand is that they expected to stay in the real X server for a while, and now this announce worries them, because if using Xmir means that using a composite manager is a requirement, there would be no advantage in using Lubuntu on hardware that doesn't support compositing or that isn't properly supported in Ubuntu.
    Xwayland was for App's Only not DE's and as well all know but the USheep is that Xmir is really just Xwayland to bad Xmir on Mir run's like shit now lets see if Xwayland runs just as bad

    The real news, IMO, is that they pushed back deployment of the full Mir stack to 14.10. Just like so many here said they would.
    How is that news? They are basically rewriting everything involving the UI besides the splash screen and login manager, I'm more surprised that they expect to be done so soon... (assuming they are aiming for a finished product that is relatively free of bugs rather than do a repeat of what happened with Unity)

    Very disappointed to see they won't make the full transition to Mir by 14.10, and it won't be in 14.04 LTS. I guess it was kind of expected, though. They were never going to finalize it in such a short amount of time until the next LTS. Still disappointed. I wonder what this means for their mobile devices.
    The article says the transition to Mir will happen in the 14.04 LTS, it's Unity 8 that won't make it in until 14.10

    It's also sad to hear that Kubuntu will be switching to Wayland, but I suppose that's their choice. They never really offered anything besides an boring vanilla KDE experience in the first place.
    I think it's sad that they are simply predicting doom for their distro, since they package KDE rather well. They don't do anything special like OpenSUSE does with themes but compared to some distros at least things seemed to work correctly. (even having kde-telepathy running)

    Come on we are all family, Richard Stallman the grandpa, Linus Torvalds the uncle and Mark, yeahh you already guess it
    By that analogy, Mark isn't your biological father, he just thinks he is.

    That would be 13% of gamers. The vast majority of PCs don't run Steam at all, and it would make sense for them to be considerably lower-end on average, at least when it comes to graphics.

    I'm not sure about linux stats in particular, but overall I believe Intel has about 50% marketshare, with nvidia around 30% and AMD about 15%.
