Peaceful_Patriot writes "l is again considering Replacing the X Window Server , which has powered the displays of Linux boxes since the 1980's, with 'Mir', which will run the much anticipated Ubuntu powered tablets and phones. According to the article, "Canonical yesterday unveiled "Mir," which it describes as "a system-level component targeted as a replacement for the X window server system to unlock next-generation user experiences for devices ranging from Linux desktop to mobile devices powered by Ubuntu." The article also mentions that Canonical announced it is moving Unity away from Nux, an OpenGL-based widget toolkit and canvas for creating user interfaces. Nux will be replaced by Qt/QML.""
