canonical is schizophrenic and stupid.
So they are going to deliver Xmir/Mir on a LTS release?
this is the kind of decision making that will ensure they will always remain irrelevant in IT.
You had the chance to ship 13.10 with xmir by default and have, at least people running intel gfx, beta test your product... and you're worried about multi monior support and BS little shit???
Ubuntu needs XMir for legacy support
But they can also be as Chakra - all qt - adapt every X.org package at the repository to Mir
In the meantime they can have a distro with Mir plus Xorg as Chrome OS with Crouton for rare packages.
they can't do that as they will lose all the credibility they (still?) have.
14.04 is going to be LTS and they can either choose to use it as a test bed for Xmir/mir or they can simply do what they did for 13.10 and simply revert back to using xorg like a bunch of wusses.
They also plan to add Unity 8 on Mir session in 13.10 but that's only plan. This version of Unity has only phone and tablet form factors and it's a work in progress.
I have a weird idea. How about if nobody releases a damn thing until it's 100% tested and working and not a fubar'd pile of crap? It can really save a lot of users a ton of headaches and at the same time improve a company's credibility.
trollololol yeah I guess canonical never pushed half assed shit out the door *coff*unity*coff*upstart*coff
they got shy now? how hard would it be to have a clickable script that would switch between xorg and xmir?
Here's canonical's real press release:
" hey fagzors we no longer give a shit about the desktop since we clearly aren't going nowheres fast lol ... we're all about dat dere smartphones now... in order to fail as hard in mobile space as we failed in desktop space we had to diverge our coders into writting their patented fail code into phones so now we have no time to deal with you and your "xmir broke my intels" shit, so fuck off, we only asked for 30 million dollars and you jew motherfuckers didn't even give us 10 million and now you want xmir for free? fuck dat you will get mir when you buy one of our ubuntu phones "
