    All this effort while they could work on a vendor agnostic Vulkan compositor...

    Can you please explain how wayland and steam are related?

    Nvidia, your whole approach to Linux drivers is appalling, but thank you for at least having at least the decency to contribute this.

    I must say that I'm happy that the KDE developers stood their ground and didn't move a finger for the worst company ever.
    Other than that, I really don't care if KDE has better support for Nvidia since none of my computers have a Nvidia GPU anymore.

    How is the EGLStream support in Gnome anyway? Does it actually work or you still have no hardware acceleration for XWayland?

    Didn't expect that this would be available that fast. I think this will help Wayland adoption on Kwin!

    Interesting, but I wish there would be more effort to enable Wayland compositors using common Vulkan paths. Looks like there is still work needed to get there.

    Please note that the link in the article goes straight to the in-progress review. Please avoid commenting there unless you're a KWin expert and it's pertinent to the code under review.
