    Filemanager was indeed horrible. Don't really like the merge of compositing, but I think/hope that can be disabled at runtime.

        Good that nobody cares about you. Compositing offers only benefits and no disadvantages.

          Compositing's mandatory under Wayland, so they're prob just making that the 'go-to-standard' and be done with it. Really the cost of compositing is minimal, since you can just disable all the effects and still get double buffered rendering

            How come there's no screenshot or any sort of images in their announcement?

              under wayland yes
              but under X11 it is, performance wise, BAD

                E19's compositor will be wayland only (iow, it'll run without X, dunno whether or not it'll still work under X11), so you won't have to worry about that for too long.

                  Extra memory consumption is a disadvantage. Does the benefits greatly out weight such a disadvantage in most cases? Yes. Is it non existent? Not at all.

                    id like to have wayland even thou i dont care much for fancy effects

                    compositing under X is good too, just not usually performance wise
                    will try e18, maybe il like it more then 17
