Clement Lefebvre: Mir has nothing to do with Linux Mint

Mir is irrelevant. Nobody ever heard of it a week ago and plans don't change based on wild speculations. If Ubuntu isn't clear on what they want Ubuntu to be, that's their problem. It has nothing to do with Linux Mint.

KDE's KWin won't support Ubuntu's Mir

Posted: 08 Mar 2013 04:28 AM PST

Mark Shuttleworth surprised the KDE community yesterday when he said, "I've absolutely no doubt that Kwin will work just fine on top of Mir. And I'm pretty confident Mir will be on a lot more devices than Wayland." It was surprising because the KWin maintainer Martin Gräßlin had already made it clear, after Wayland controversy, that he won't support Mir and veto any attempt to do so. It seems like Shuttleworth made that statement without consulting or talking to the KDE developers.
