- I agree with the critisism's of mir. Mir's marketing arm seems to far overshadow what it can actually do. I see all kinds of news saying stuff like "zomg ubuntu 13.10 using mir by default" and then all kinds of silly comments saying that mir is awesome and wayland is vaporware, when the actual fact is mir does almost nothing, and ubuntu using mir "as default" is just running X11 on top of mir, with X still doing 95% of the work. Ubuntu "using it by default" gives a false appearence that mir will be "ready" quicker than wayland and that it is further along, when in reality thats not really the case.
Its also worth mentioning mir is build on top of a lot of upstream work, without the work done by wayland and other upstream projects (xwayland, egl drivers etc...) mir wouldn't even to be able to do the little it does now.Jul 8, 2013

Canonical didn't do a shred of work on the wayland project. They made no commits, they didn't even bother contacting any of the wayland developers about any of their concerns/needs.
Just saying "its a high priority" doesn't mean crap if you don't actually do anything about it... Canonical sat on their hands, made no effort to contact wayland devs or contribute any code and then were dissatisfied that it "wasn't happening fast enough".Jul 8, 2013
