    Will kde run on mir at all?

    I hate to link phoronix but - http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTMyMjM

    So can we count kde out from when ubuntu uses Mir?

    I don't really get much about what is going on. Seems canonical has just annoyed a lot of people over Mir, personally IDC what display server Ubuntu runs as long as it's open source and works well.

    One can only speculate because Mir is not much more than a list of wishes right now, but:

    - KDE could be used with another Window Manager. This doesn't make much sense to me, but it is possible in theory.
    - Kwin could run on top of XMir, the X compatibility layer Mir would provide (Essentially XWayland renamed).
    - Kubuntu could use X or Wayland instead or Mir. For example Linux Mint devs have already announced that they don't plan to use Mir.

    Yes, not a good thing.

    It is this kind of thing that we are here to test. Each of us may have his own choice of user interface but as testers we test. All the devs have to do is ask. And we can give answers from real life installations and the perspective of real life users.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Well considering KDE does moist of its own thing anyway, I say this will not my decision to stick with KDE.

    Well I use Cinnamon anyway and will probably switch to Linux Mint at some point in the future since i don't want or need Unity on my PC. Was just curious.

    The KDE maintainer has said that he will veto any patches relating to supporting Mir for KDE. In order for KDE to run on Mir, Canonical and Ubuntu contributors will have to actively maintain a patch set for Ubuntu. However if another distribution besides Ubuntu decides to use Mir, then they will probably change their minds. Personally, I doubt that will happen.

    That's so pathetic and has just made my thoughts of KDE go down hill.
