According to this, Intel has dropped support for Mir. What is the effect on end user?

1 Answer 1


Mir will work fine on Intel video cards.

Intel dropped upstream support for Mir, but since the Intel graphics drivers are open source, Ubuntu developers can add patches to re-enable Mir support in Ubuntu's version of the drivers. The move means more work for Ubuntu developers (who need to maintain these patches), but no change for the end users.

  • yeah, especially on GMA3600/GMA3650 (sarcasm)
