I'm sure we've all heard about the potential move to XMir for Xubuntu.
I don't see a discussion thread anywhere so I thought I'd start one so
we can all offer our opinions.
As a daily Xubuntu user, I would be against putting XMir as the
default on Xubuntu 13.10. In fact, I don't think that this should be
done until at least 14.10. For one, there are still a lot of open
issues surrounding XMir (multi monitor support being a big one) and it
is much less mature. Setting that to the default probably will cause a
lot more issues than we expect on the field. Stability is a very
important issue for many users such as myself.
Furthermore, we would be taking a big performance penalty if we
included XMir as the default for 13.10 (probably will improve in the
near future but there will still be another layer):
I would be totally okay with putting this in a package somewhere
(xubuntu-desktop-xmir?) so users can opt to install it themselves to
test and so forth.
