It seams like Wayland (Sway) is less memory intensive compared to X11 (i3wm)!
The future is coming baby!
@Ghosty On Fedora it's already here
I have Fedora 32 on my Acer Switch 10 tablet and GNOME is absolutely great on mobile interfaces!
@Linux It’s starting to see wide adoption :).
I wanted to try Wayland out for a long time now.
But what held me back was that my workstation has an Nvidia card in it and Sway doesn’t support Nvidias proprietary driver stuff :D
But while setting up my laptop today I installed Sway instead of i3 :D
Yes! What i also kinda like, is that Gnome is coming the "standard Linux DE" to begin with.
Fedora, Ubuntu, Pop!_OS, TAILS, Debian...
Lessens our burden helping the new Linux adopters.
I'm an Xfce-sucker myself, tho
@Ghosty the future has poorly written documentation
@EdwardTorvalds The future is always weird and unfinished
@Ghosty nah, future is poor like Linux. Proprietary OS, even though privacy invasive, still provide features like multimedia handling, hardware acceleration, etc, better than Linux.
@EdwardTorvalds Everything has got pros and cons :D
@Ghosty exactly! so is this 'future' 😄
@EdwardTorvalds Of course! Wayland is far from being perfect.
Especially this whole Nvidia debacle and no SSH forwarding is making this clear for me :).
@Ghosty Wayland is very neat, but I moved away from it, since it still has some minor issues.
It is the future though!
@RMW It's a bit rough about the edges.
I agree with your blog post. For me the biggest draw backs are Nvidia being Nvidia and that you can't forward Wayland through SSH :).
