Mir Still Causing Concerns By Ubuntu Derivatives

Filed under
Software
Ubuntu

With Canonical's planned adoption of their in-house Mir Display Server over the next year rather than using an X.Org Server or Wayland, derivatives such as KDE-based Kubuntu continue to fear the change and what exactly the options will be.

Basically, the options now for Kubuntu (and similar derivatives like the LXDE and Xfce versions) is to either use Mir, use Wayland and hope everything works out, or simply end of life the distribution.
