Intel Says No to Ubuntu’s New Display Server

Intel announced yesterday, September 7, 2013, that they’ve removed support for XMir, Canonical’s new X11 display server that will be injected in the upcoming releases of the Ubuntu Linux operating system, from the xf86-video-intel package, the open source driver for Intel video cards.

Some say that this is a “dirty game” played by Intel, trying to promote the upcoming Wayland display server across all Linux distributions, except Ubuntu, which decided to have its own display server called Mir.
