Mark Shuttleworth: "Mir has Delivered"

I am absolutely open to new ideas. I personally think Mir is excellent and should not allow blank screens or other GPU related problems that linux encounters.

For 14.04 LTS, the X protocol is in the grave. Whereas 13.10 implements XMir - a sort of passthrough still dependent on the archaic protocols.

Although Unity will be absolutely bugless, i'll just pass if off. I wont use anymore...for the time being.

KDE 4.10.x is a formidable DE. Even Gnome 3.x is preferable. Future Gnome versions will be a re-awakening for the desktops and i do prefer gnome-shell over unity.

Compiz is now fully fragmented. Unity will implement it more discretely. So even if compiz formally gets no support, its integrated in Unity and gets improved upon(natively). I honestly dont care for compiz as much and KDE uses kwin. Xcompmgr, too does a brilliant job.

Gnome-classic is just a fallback, nothing more. Mate is deja-vu and trying to live up to a false dream....but these are just my opinions.

I saw a benchmark on phornix i don't remember. XFCE topped the list and xmir or mir $uk'd
Thats why from 12.10 i shifted to xfce 4.10. Never had any issues.
(Yes as of today KDE is the only stable and feature full DE (but for me its a bit on heavy side))

I saw that benchmark too. But saw the performance drop compared to Xorg. But that was Unity. Kde is running beautifully on MIR.
