While Mir won't be part of the default Ubuntu 13.10 desktop, it will be part of Ubuntu Touch 13.10 and development is continuing in a steadfast manner to make it ready for the desktop in 2014. Mir 0.0.13 was released today while bumping the Mir Server library to version 5...
Legendary developers Canonical continue to advance the Linux desktop despite all the haters. The haters may have won one battle with XMir not going in 13.10, but they will not win the war! To Mir on all desktops!
Really? The "haters" are at fault for Canonical having overly ambitious plans? The reality distortion field must be strong where you live.
I didn't say that the haters are at fault. Just that they have won one battle but will lose the war.
So they have unintentionally won the battle, which in your Universe actually means: Canonical has this one time made a reasonable decision with not throwing something that is not ready for deployment at their users. Ubuntu users win, because they don't get alpha grade software as default in the new version, but in your Universe the haters have won the battle?
