However, it seems that 14.10 will not exactly be a
bundle of newly found
excitement. Looking through comments on-line it doesn't look like 14.10 will
have the much awaited MIR...
"Summary: Despite optimistic 2011 predictions of a fully converged
cross-platform OS running Mir and UnityNext (8) by 2014, Ubuntu 14.10 is set
to retain X Windows and Unity 7. Based on this beta, it seems there will be
no big changes in 14.10, although upgrading is always worthwhile."
"Mark Shuttleworth said he does not now expect Mir as default on the desktop
until Ubuntu 16.04 LTS at the earliest..."
2016? Wow, that's still ages away. Didn't think so that it would take
that long. But then I guess, people always underestimate the
complexity of GUIs...
