    Re: Who wants to test MIR?

    I'm just wondering how/if GS will work under Mir.
    Probably it will work just fine. Something like XFCE i am not sure. But XFCE (Xubuntu) could still use different display server until it upgrades to GTK+ 3 that is said will have Mir support. If Ubuntu will not switch to lets say KDE apps then i doubt GNOME 3 apps will have problems running on Mir. But this is just my speculation based on current info.

    These are times of change, and I guess we just have to wait and see how it all shakes out...

    Much water will flow under the London bridges before that happens...

    True and again based on current info it will take at least one year to start thinking about desktop implementation. Primary objective is mobile devices and a lot can change in a year or two. And things are going to change for sure Xorg will stay relevant for some time to come but the fact new display servers are on the rise well this trend probably can't be stopped.

    What can I do with the PPA at tis point?
    Looking at it first we have to wait Mir package is built. Then i don't know probably it would work only with open source drivers. About running apps on it maybe in "Xorg compatibility" mode? It can't just replace Xorg at this moment based on packages in the PPA that would mean it's "production ready".

    No, we like rock-solid stability at all times, and no surprises.... NOT!

    Is MIR a fork of something, or are they really building a new display server from scratch?
