Xubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander Not Switching To Xmir By Default
After a very important meeting for the Xubuntu feature, the Xubuntu team decided that Xubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander won’t ship with Mir & XMir by default. Why did the Xubuntu team tool such a decision? We don’t know every reason for sure, but one important reason that dictated this decision is the fact that there are many issues with Xmir and Xubuntu for the moment. Another reason is that does not bring any improvement yet, so why ship the Xubuntu 13.10 with Xmir by default? If it does not bring improvements and anything new to the game, why should the Xubuntu Team ship the Xubuntu 13.10 with Xmir? I don’t see any reason doing so, do you?
The Xubuntu team wants the best performance and distro for Xubuntu users, so they came to the conclusion that Xmir will not be by default in Xubuntu 13.10, Xmir is still a project in development and is not mature yet. The fact that this release of Xubuntu will not have Xmir by default does not mean that other releases will not have it, because the Xubuntu team will evaluate Xmir again and again, when it has the features the Xubuntu team wants and when it is more mature. Also I have to mention that the team is thinking to ship Xubuntu with Xmir when it can be a better option for Xubuntu users. Now, do you want to know some secrets about the meeting? Ah, it is not a big deal, it is some information about the voting process that took place in the meeting of Xubuntu Team.
I will give you guys details on two questions, the first one and the second one? The first question was, “should we wait for improvements landing to XMir later (but before the FF)? “, do you want to know the voting result for this question? It was rejected with 0 votes for waiting, 4 votes against and 1 abstention. The second question was “Should Xubuntu 13.10 ship with Xmir” and the result was 5 votes against, 0 abstentions and 0 votes for including Mir.
I think that Xubuntu team did the right thing, the user should come first, without users there is no way to move forward. Who gives us guarantee that Xmir is bug free? The stability is the most important thing, it makes users happy, it makes me happy!
