A look at Mer

- Mir is an alternative to Weyland, a graphics layer; both intend to substitute X11R7's graphics layer as the default; Mir is a canonical.com project while Weyland is a x.org project.
- Mer is a fork of MeeGo; both are (semi-?)complete distro/stacks for smartphones; the history goes like "once upon a time there was Intel's Moblin and Nokia's Maemo but they got married and became MeeGo; but Nokia got in bed with Microsoft and Maemo became Harmattan but now she wants to be called Maemo again, MeeGo became Tizen and went to Samsung, and the community forked it into Mer."
