    Mir isnt switched on by default yet with daily iso

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install mir-demos unity-system-compositor

    ps ax | grep "unity"

    If "unity-system-compositor" is seen mir is running
    If you don't and are using proprietary drivers the fall back to x worked

    New apps (after major desktops migrate) should probably use directly Wayland (in the case they don't use a toolkit). As for porting already existent ones, they can take their sweet time, and that's probably the idea.

    Speaking of Wayland support for SDL, Ryan Gordon and Kristian H?gsberg confirmed via Twitter that the external Wayland-SDL branch will hopefully be merged soon and this Wayland back-end could very well premiere in SDL 2.0.1.

    So SDL will support Wayland before Mir. The maintainer of SDL works for Valve. So it doesn't seem Valve is that interrested in Mir...

    It's not FUD. Everything he said is true, and there are several articles on Phoronix that support his claims. Games are supposed to work out of the box with XMir/XWayland, so it's true that there's nothing mandating any port. However, I think native support would imply a slight performance win and would be cleaner, since that's one of the reasons to drop X; using SDL should do the work to avoid XWayland/XMir anyway.
    And 13.10 will be XMir, and 14.04 too, according to Canonical. So, not FUD at all.

    Funny, the only way to winning move in this game is to not play.

    While I don't agree with Linuxgamer in any way shape or form..... I'm leaning towards the notion that valve will stick with Xorg via XWayland/XMir for at least 1-3 years before migrating to native Wayland or Mir support. Seems like a huge amount of work to switch display drivers when they JUST added Xorg support. They may not be very friendly to that. I wouldn't if I were them, that's alot of wasted money for a small platform like linux is (I'm not putting linux down, just stating the truth, we're small...)

    here let me fix it for you

    I Said "There" "is" "100%" "No" "Point" "For" "Valve" "To" "Support" "Mir" "or" "Wayland" "as" "Games" "Will" "Work" "Just" "Fine" "On" "Xwayland" "Once" "it" "is" "Ready"

    Read what you quoted. It says they have no reason to, and that's true.
