Canonical, the company founded by Mark Shuttleworth to promote the popular Ubuntu Linux operating system everywhere around the world, has recently published the 'year in review' for their Mir display server technology.
As most of you are aware, Canonical develops its own display server for Ubuntu, called Mir, which, in some ways, is similar to the X.Org Server and Wayland technologies.
While Ubuntu on the desktop still uses X.Org Server's components, Mir is currently heavily tested for the Unity 8 user interface that Canonical plans on implementing by default for future releases of Ubuntu Linux, for desktops.
