    Default Wayland'ized GNOME Shell Gets A Binary

    Phoronix: Wayland'ized GNOME Shell Gets A Binary

    GNOME Shell has got another Wayland improvement ahead of the GNOME 3.10 debut next month...

    Now if only XWayland was merged into X11 already it would be pretty much usable with open source drivers.

    Pitty that it became one of the most annoying DEs to use.

    Since we are throwing our opinions out like facts, I might as well: Gnome 3 is the most productive and comfortable DE to use.

    Let's not get carried away here... and try to at least keep things in the realm of believability.

    I've seen people using it at my work. It seems to be working quite fine.

    Only if you're not an irreformable brick who thinks no possibility to place icon on the desktop is a slander to usability. You know, because Windows 95 defined usability and there's no need to look at it again, is it?

    Default Icons on desktop

    @Bucic is correct, Gnome 2.x and Mate are just so last century.

    Personally I hate icons strewn all over a desktop. But, if that is what you want it is one click in Gnome Tweak Tool. Most shell haters never get as far as actually looking at the settings or extensions.

    I will be trying the Wayland version with 3.10, one more step into the future.
