    How come I get a few more FPS in games on Linux than on Windows then?

    News is Mir lands in 13.10 but then I only hear about the phone version actually working.
    Still if desktop Mir is enabled in 13.10 will the Gnome apps work directly on Mir? If thru Xmir then there's little to no value using Mir.

    Looking stuff up on Wikipedia is really not that hard.

    I think more are using Ubuntu now, have some friends who work in animation, and they say most renderfarms they use run on Ubuntu. Weta Digital is a great example as they are now an entirely Ubuntu shop, with Ubuntu used for *both* their workstations and their render farms. Films they have worked on include Avatar, District9, Day the Earth Stood Still, Jumper, King Kong, Lord of the Rings, Fantastic Four, Eragon, X-Men, i-Robot. (source: http://blog.dustinkirkland.com/2010/...r-renders.html).

    Ubuntu does own the cloud guest OS market with about 60% market share worldwide (see http://thecloudmarket.com/stats for up to date stats), I suppose some of the same benefits that made Ubuntu so dominant in the cloud also apply to render farms.

    yes indeed.We saw how the traditinal approach of distos to the desktop worked out so far.The head of gnome says "i see no feature linux in the desktop market" . Then they group up a campaign against ubuntu,stop their progress by unmotivating them with heavy critisizes,sayin every that its sh*t and so , making wayland a standart . I tried lot of distros even puppy and i think one of them that can shake things up in desktop market and other markets would be absolutely UBUNTU.

    You're confused. Mark Shuttleworth recently told ArsTechnica that the desktop has no future which is why he's doing Ubuntu Touch.

    My nvidia run with *stuttering serious sam bfe3 and left 4 dead2, on windows I have perfectly 60fps smooth, at 1080p( gt 660), my amd apu, take 5 minutes for start a game...., on windows I play perfectly without issues, for me linux it's not an option for gaming yet.

    I don't see why people think its fair to mock Mir for not being ready after 1 year of development(ie: its useless, can't even run applications natively), but Wayland gets a free pass even though we've been waiting since early 2008.....

    I saw that article and your interpretation is very piss-poor.

    The problem isn't that Mir isn't ready, it is that Ubuntu is going to use it anyway.

    you know, modularisation of X.org server, changes of the linux graphic stack, and such, that have been made for/along wayland all these years, and make Mir possible.

    Why do you think Mir was started only one year ago and not in 2008?
