Both Nvidia and Ati release new drivers over the ;ast few days and so this might have resolved a few remaining issues with graphics drivers

IMO, the *buntu's are still very buggy and slow compared to other distros of Linux. However, when I used the 13.04 daily builds, is was a LOT better than previous versions. I too had the NVIDIA driver issues and had to reboot into text mode and delete my xorg.conf or something like that to fix it.

I think I'll replace the xbmcbuntu install on my secondary media center(technically it was supposed to replace my old one, but faulty parts and many months of delays and a leftover PUS that fixed my old working one put it as a secondary one upstairs on the computer room) and see if this and XBMC installed separately works better.

not that xbmcbuntu don't work well. but... not control panel to config stuff. doesn't want to connect to any SMB shares, just says it can't find them whatever I put in. so I'll see if this works better.

Huh, looks like it doesn't use Mir by default. Is Mir even usable on it yet? What about Unity Next (the QML version)?

As much as Mir has gotten a bad rap, I like the idea of an X replacement that's actually portable to BSD.

We won't see mir by default until unity-next, which is slated for 14.04 (and I have my doubts about that timeline). It will probably be testable in 13.10, but definitely not default. 13.10 will still use gnome 3.8/unity/compiz by default.

As I understood it, Mir is a long way from being ready an certainly from being default.

By the time Mir is ready for public testing, they will probably have understood their in way above their heads and changed their mind and gone wayland. If not, I don't put much faith in the Ubuntu devs self insight anymore.

Here is a Linux N00b question.. can you use Ubuntu's repositories on other debian based distros?

Some of them. Depends on what the packages rely on.

You can definitely use Debian packages on Ubuntu.

Possibly, but don't you require PPA or something?
