    Phoronix: Maynard: A Lightweight Wayland Desktop

    Collabora has publicly announced this morning Maynard, a new Wayland-based shell that's lightweight and should work great for the Raspberry Pi...

    This looks great! It's almost exactly the improvements I've said Gnome should have made a long time ago. Only crit is I think the settings/sound should be at the bottom and the app menu at the top. Menubar theme could also use some work, but I'm sure these things will improve as it matures. Definitely going to keep an I on this one.

      Maynard, as in Maynard James Keenan? Well, for Yet Another Wayland Desktop Shell™ news piece, you got my attention...
      If nothing else, I salute you for your choice of a name.
      Well done Sir.

              Does anyone knows if there is a good tiling wm (i3-like) on Wayland ?

                E19 (which will work on WL) has a tiling module but haven't used it.

                  Looks like you can have easy WMs when you target swc for wayland.

                      I'm really not an expert, but isn't compositing kinda the point of Wayland, as in baked into the very fabric of its being? I thought the whole perfect frame, no tearing/flickering concept was dependent on compositing, and Wayland is a lightweight way of achieving compositing. Whereas tiling is a distinctly xorg concept, with WMs leveraging xorg's overreaching desire to draw it's own windows.

                        Tiling WMs have a different way of arranging windows (no overlapping windows), in opposite to stacking WMs, like KWin, Openbox, ... . It has nothing to do with compositing and it is not a Xorg concept.
                        I indeed would also like a port of i3 to Wayland.

                            The swc developer has a dmenu port. I just hope swc gets updated for the xwayland changes though
