    go to the ppa https://launchpad.net/~mir-team/+archive/staging and click on Technical Details about this PPA and a panel will open and you will see Choose your Ubuntu Version. We have a choice of two: Raring (13.04) and Quantal (12.10). At the moment it might be more vapourware than software but the existence of a PPA indicates that code is going to come down the turnpike. There are couple of Ubuntu wiki pages as well regarding this stuff. That tells me that MIR and Unity Next are not skunk-works ' projects.

    In the past something like this would have been held back until the next development cycle or the one after that. Could the releasing of this information and the setting up of a PPA be part of Rolling development of Raring on and on?
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    I dedicated a whole tower for this.

    Should be interesting. I hope so or I'll just scratch another install.

    I'm not worried. I know the testing philosophy - try to create breakage- I have plenty of hdds and processors.

    I think so, he's currently transitioning his work to PPA, he's answering questions on google plus

    Mir is available for Raring (20 minutes ago)...
    How to use it? ...
    Ups, while we contemplate how to use it it will take 38 more minutes for it to get start on compile for amd_64...
    So, in an hour or so...

    Note: it only works with the open source : intel & radeon, nothing else right now

    so its a bit too early to rush on it

    'Right now Mir is said to only work with the Intel and Radeon open-source graphics drivers, but evidently is not yet working for Nouveau.'
