    Still using Unity on 16.04 for years, but now that I've found Unite gnome extension I might make the change. For now I still look for a gnome extension to the 3D folders of Unity8. I like that feature but only if it's not resource hungry.

    Mir it's a compositor, and Wayland is a protocol. Now Mir supports the Wayland protocol can composite Wayland clients. Your comparation doesn't make any sense.

    Canonical obsession with Mir, which almost wipe out Ubuntu Phone/Touch OS, can't be justified in any way. Mir it's not even superior to Wayland

    I don't think I would go back to using it, but it would be great to have that option on Debian too.
    Same, I can't understand the change to gnome, if they want a wayland to have better support they simply need to move mir to wayland nothintg more, ubuntu 17.10 was really bad I will see this new Lts if it will become another nightmare

    Unity8 will continue to use Mir as its display server. However, Mir (the display server) is being repurposed as a Wayland compositor, and "Once Mir’s support for Wayland clients is on a par with the support for 'native' Mir clients [Canonical] will likely phase out support for the latter." Sometime before that, Unity8 will be fully Wayland compliant.

    So yes, Unity8 will eventually use Wayland, by way of the Mir display server.

    Confusing, no?

    That is good. They really need to add some sort of Nvidia driver support for me to use it though.

    Am I to understand that the community is paralelling Canonical LTS support cycles now that Unity 8 is non-Canonical.

    Regarding Unity 8 in the Debian repositories, the topic is discussed starting at about 51:31 in the Ubuntu Touch Q&A 24 video.

    Also, for those who are interested, the goal to support Project Treble is discussed starting at about 25:35 in the video.
