Default Canonical announces Mir display server to replace X Window

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/03..._announcement/

Quote:
Canonical has announced plans to develop new, open source Linux display-server software called Mir, in a move that it says will help further its goal of offering a unified Ubuntu user experience across PCs, smartphones, tablets, and smart TVs.

[snip]

Recently, a number of Linux distributions have lent their support to Wayland, a free-software replacement for X that aims to make it easier to render modern, hardware-accelerated GUI desktops.

Until recently, Canonical could be counted among that list. But on Monday it unveiled its plans to develop Mir as a new, completely separate display server, one that is neither X nor Wayland.

And now they will fork X, wayland and Mir just like linuxes.... Instead of fixing core problem, they will new ones.

Great, just what we need.
