    Michael, can you run Mir vs Xserver with dota2? I believe I remember see'ing dota2 benchmarked on Mir in the past by someone else, since it is a SDL2 game.

      Since they already said that it feels smooth, then this will be slick right? Oily? Soapy?

              imagine if all the effort spent on Mir had been put into Wayland :-(

                It is like saying "Imagine if all the effort spent on KDE had been put into Gnome" or something like that...
                Several options is a good thing and neither is actually working properly yet, both far from being default. Besides, there is no real benefit for the user, performance claims are just marketing bullshit. It is just a way for developers to drop lots of X11 legacy stuff. It should've been X12 instead of Mir/Wayland.
