    Re: Who wants to test MIR?

    Based on current info Xorg compatibility is based on XWayland but toolkit support will not use Waylands work and for mobile devices it will use some of the concepts of Android display server for probably better current Android hardware/driver support... I would say it's made from scratch. But yes i could be wrong.

    It's vapourware at this point isn't it?

    We can't test a wholly dysfunctional video interface. Watching verbose characters roll across the screen is not a functioning system. All I hear about Unity is that it is a 'graphical' interface that is sexy, punchy .. etc... and with the way the recent isos have been going it looks anything but sexy or punchy. Here we go again ... just throw *current* up agaist the wall and lets try somthing new. I busted one machine already today and borked 3 installs. I earned my keep ! But these days remind of the olde snail-mail days and I guess wehave to take the good with the bad.

    case in point .. I saved one of my Brand New Nvidia cards GeForce210/210. It had a MSI heat sync on it. Nvidia settings reported 69C!! Thats cooking .. so I built my own fan. Now 39C. Kewl.

    Mir hasn't been built for raring yet, AFAICT.
