    Yep, I think that a minimum effort about naming coherence and communication really needs to be done.
    After they wonder why FOSS is not attractive to mainstream… well see how Blender does and learn. They communicate, do blog post about future plans and news…

    Especially Mesa have big budgets and full time staff on the drivers. They can’t blame budget.
    Having a modern and clean website with a modern and up to date doc is the minimum.

    And here is a prime example of terribly wrong confusing naming. Mesa is already a mess for names but here it’s going too far in the non-sense!

    I like naming stuff based on periodic table like Gallium, Zink, soon Copper. Why not Radium for the Radeon Vulkan by example…
    The "State Tracker/Driver" is confusing enough as it is. which is why people still think zink is exclusively for OGL, when it can just as nicely run G9. also it doesn't help that all the websites almost never get updated too. just take a look here LOL

    I don't think its much of an issue its not like we will see a d3d12 gallium state tracker anytime remotely close to soon.

    Ok, it emits d3d12 calls but it's just like if Zink was named Vulkan....

    still don't understand what benefit WSL2 over wine would bring.

    The other way is already possible: WINE running on WSL2.
    And can you run Wine inside that WSL2 session inside of WINE? And drag some accelerated graphics API along?

    We need to go deeper.
