    Default Screenshots?

    I would try it out myself, but every time I try to build Unity-next something breaks or fails and it doesn't build. So can anybody provide Screenshots?

    Default Wayland

    I rather see Wayland support.
    They should get Unity-next running on Wayland.

    It might... it all depends, how many people leave the Ubuntu boat to use other distros, once they can no longer use Real Linux software on Ubuntu.

    hey strumflut,
    not sure what's not working....but wanted to encourage you to give it another shot.
    acutally, to be clear...we're not quite there on a public version of unity8 on Mir....but should be soon.

    right now you can build or run prebuilts of mir or unity8 seperately on pc or on android.

    assuming you are actually referring to unity8 (fka unitynext) then try the instructions once more...
    http://unity.ubuntu.com/getinvolved/...ent/unitynext/

    they did go through a small update recently.
    hope you find success.
