Now keep in mind it could be an outdated page, it hasn't been touched since May 2013...
      Today marks 1 year since they announced the thing BTW.

        I know this is blasphemy on this site - but I can't wait to see Mir in its full glory.

        That video demonstration looked so smooth.

        This anticipation feels like the late 90's again - when I would wait for Linux Forum magazine to ship from the UK with its CD packed with new software to try for the first time.

            The wayland video showed it not being fullscreened, and opening multiple windows. This was just exercising scrolling and the browser's webgl implementation. I'd have love to have seen how the windowing worked (considering that is one of the two areas that this is addressing).

              Nah, that's so old, man! Now it's Red Hat! Hating Red Hat is what it is all about, man! Them dictators forcing stuff upon us, ruing our freedom of choice! Screw them! /s

                This presentation is filmed with an external camera, the wayland/weston one is using the screen recorder implemented in weston if i'm not mistaken.

                See Thiago Vignattis comment " UI smoothness is really tricky when video casting cause the CPU is already exhausted due the video capture. So I agree that things are not smooth on this video but it is when in normal usage "

                  Oliver Ries blogged about this development providing a couple more technical details. As one might expect Mir development being focused mainly on mobile devices so far (phones, tablets) it doesn't provide Window Management.

                  I am calling it ?proof of concept? not because of the quality of the code, but because there is more work to do to fully integrate Chromium with Mir, e.g. Mir does not provide Window Management, so Chromium will excel to its fullest extend only on Unity 8 on Mir.

                    In graphics on Linux DRM means Direct Rendering Manager.

                      on the linked ubuntu site it means not what you link to but the restriction management:

                      "DRM (digitial rights)" all incl. the stuff in the brackets is listed on the ubuntu site.

                      Topic:

                      > diff Wayland Mir | wc -l
                      10

                      All that work just so Canonical can do like they did made Wayland. But on the other hand thank you canonical else I would sticked maybe another year or more with that bad os, with not only a bad init-system but also really bad defaults (kernel get never removed if you install updates so at some point you have 100 installed) and no ramfs/tmpfs and so on...
