Is it possible to test XMir on a startup disk, and if so how?
I've generated a startup disk from the latest daily iso's but so far as I can tell it's running regular X. I'm guessing this is because XMir has not yet landed as default in 13.10 ... ? So, I guess it will be necessary to install XMir via the PPA. The question is whether this is a sane/wise thing to do.
I suppose as an alternative I could try the Xubuntu-on-XMir iso, but I'm a Unity user by habit ...
Bottom line is, I don't have a spare machine to try things out on and I'd really like to give XMir-based Ubuntu a proper spin well in advance of the 13.10 release, so any advice on how to do this is welcome. I have heard that VirtualBox doesn't really play nice in this respect, otherwise I'd try that as a solution.
Lastly, is there a known ETA for XMir being enabled by default in the daily iso's? From chatter on the Xubuntu mailing list it looks like it should be arriving in the 13.10 archives in the next days.
Thanks an advance for any advice or information!
