I am here on Ubuntu/precise AMD64 (WUBI installation) and wanted to
test the new "Ubuntu graphic stack" based on (X)Mir after being
inspired by a German article [1].

Is there somewhere an ISO-image around for easy testing?
Daily ones?

In [2] I see that saucy is minimum base and the PPA lists saucy and raring.
How easy/bad/impossible/brainfu**ed is backporting to precise?
( I can place required X components in an /opt/xorg path. Just thinking... )

Thanks for answering my questions.
