    Who wants to test MIR?

    Found this after reading some news site. I hope it is ok to post it in Ubuntu+1.

    'Mir' display server

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MirSpec

    and here something about 'UnityNext'

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Yep, and Mir was a Sovjet space station, and Mark Shuttleworth (the man behind Canonical / Ubuntu) was in space once. So there might be a correlation between that.

    I will follow this with interest, but I am, quite frankly, not a Unity guy. It might be time for me to go shopping for another distro that really supports Gnome Shell.

    In which way this distro does not support GS? I'm writing this from up-to-date GS... What am I missing? Next message might be from Unity, next from fallback... Not to mention many other WM that I have on my disposal running just Ubuntu...

    Re: Who wants to test MIR?

    This distro currently supports GS just fine, and indeed, I am writing this on an up-to-date GS 3.7.90. I've been with Ubuntu since Warty, and am not a compulsive distro-jumper.

    I'm just wondering how/if GS will work under Mir.

    I would absolutely love to be able to test it, but I haven't read or seen anything that demonstrates that it is available for testing. Have I missed something?

    Thumbs up Re: New display server 'Mir'

    Ehm,

    yes, this should have own thread it is now spread over 5 others and a little OT...

    Assumption: Canonical reconsider this idea deeply and is going to follow this goal.
    Status: I think this move is necessary.
    My reaction: HELL YEAH I hope most of (GNU)/Linux community will participate in this. I'm really looking forward to this Finally I can say that they are doing something. This move makes me believe that they are not leaving PC/laptop segment. Hope the best.

    Result: Epic win or even more epic fail for me it is 80:20 because it looks like really good thought out idea. Burn all the haters

    Edit: maybe is considerable merge with this topic: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2122258
