    I do have the ppa installed and working.
    From MirPPA, arrived this morning and pulled just OK...
    Nice play with Mir:

    So many hours on the keyboard. I need comic relief once in while. Talking to stuffed animals helps me think outside the box.

    If that's what floats your boat, go for it.

    What I think is scary is the fact that you understand every word the beaver is saying.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    A quick question - I have Ubuntu installed in a separate partition just for testing and have other installations so I'm not worried about borking the software by trying mir. But I was concerned.. I want to test mir but I want to know.. it won't affect the hardware, will it?

    I do not think so. At present Mir is a long way from being a display service. I think development work will happen fast but at the moment it is sitting on the Xserver. Once it becomes a stand-alone display server then I guess it will have to be able to set the correct resolutions for monitors. There are some things to watch out for.

    I edited the lightdm.conf file as instructed and now I get a tty1 prompt. I mess around a bit and get a desktop with out Unity. I guess I missed something out. That is not unusual for me. You might also want to install the Ubuntu Touch core apps. There is now a daily PPA for Raring. Click Technical details about this PPA and Choose your Ubuntu.

    These are the mobile core apps and they are supposed to run on Mir. They do not do anything at the moment. They are just icons in the Dash. But it is a way of watching things get developed.
