    Has XMir (the old method) been dropped yet?

        IIRC it was just copied and pasted from XWayland.

          not really at time it works much better than XWayland, who continues not working

            I use XWayland every day, it works so I'm not sure what you're on about.

              Wow it's almost as if it works for some people and not for others because it has problems

                Wayland + XWayland + GNOME + nvidia here, working fine for like 2.5 years. I don't know how, I'm surprised seeing all the complaints.

                I don't understand this Unity + MIR thing: didn't Canonical [finally] dropped them and switched back to GNOME + Wayland? Shouldn't they be dead?

                  Not even close. Full disclosure: I worked on the XMir code.

                    The strength of FOSS is that a company stopping work on a project doesn't kill the project.

                    In this case, Canonical did stop contributing to Unity and Unity8, but both projects have carried on without them.

                    And no, Canonical has not stopped investing in Mir.
