    Mind boggled that Mir is turning into a thing that might actually be useful, depending on performance. In my opinion both gnome and KDE are bloated and nearly unusable, and have had performance issues with XFCE as well. It would be awesome if the Mate desktop could be rebased on a high performance Wayland compositor....

    Wlroots is a library to assist in writing a wayland compatible compositor.

    I'm sorry but could somebody explain to me what project actually uses Mir and why we need it? Isn't it something similar like wlroots now?

    All I am reading about it is that they make some improvements, but I don't know of anyone using it, so what is the point?

    And I don't mean to sound critical about the project, I am genuinely curious.
