    Phoronix: Building & Running The Ubuntu Mir Display Server

    The latest coverage of today's surprise announcement of Canonical developing Mir, their own display server for Ubuntu, is information on building and running the Mir display server with the code they open-sourced today. There's also a Phoronix video showcasing the (sad) state of the Mir client demo...

    I don't think we are supposed to watch it and/or comment it.
    this is canonical's property.

    all jokes aside, the joke that has been going for years that ubuntu is not linux but windows due to the easy way of doing things, now I realize that linux and ubuntu are 2 separate meanings. I don't know why those antics are happening with the display servers, but I know that we were eating from the same soup and now we are spooning each others' eyes.

    I just don't get it. How did with people no experience in this stuff make their own display server? Is it a fork of Android's SurfaceFlinger has orginally rumored?

    Based on this I would say they have not built much of anything.

    Default TBH

    Even if it is fun to bash I truly think that Canonical wouldn't waste time on something they didn't thought was mandatory for the evolution of Ubuntu, yes, it is not helping neither X or Wayland developers and it looks like the TO-DO list is longer then the "done" one, but again, Canonical isn't playing around and we all saw it with Steam and Ubuntu phone, I say, lets wait & see
