    I doubt there'd be any interest from Gnome in updating that page... it's just a tracker used early in their Wayland support process (most of the bug reports date to 2013), not some official list of Wayland-compatible apps.

      For an old and unmaintainable code *they* (the maintainers and developers) were quite capable of entirely modularizing and modernizing the old monolithic code that XFree used to be.

        Also, I would like to object on that pixel-perfect point.
        Since 2016 I haven't seen a line of tearing when using a compositor in X.
        WTF this has been mentioned so many times: Wayland doesn't enforce CSD nor SSD by it's protocol...

          Because they are made for dummies. Almost everything about their software, from the UI design to the centralized crap stores to the full-screen software themselves, treats the user like a retarded monkey. Honestly it's probably what the users who love using them already are, so...

            The Debian Xfce desktop does not have a single of them. https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/b.../amd64/iso-cd/
            Xfce hasn't been updated in like 5 years, should we be parading how electric cars are dead because my 2008 Ford doesn't have a plug?

                I am also cheering for Arcan.

                Wish there was a distro based around it.
                I had a look at Void, but the arcan packages seemed a bit bolt on and not ready for prime time.

                Edit: Just to clarify my statement above. The fact that the distro's do not offer a live image or installer like they do for cinnamon, xfce etc leaves me with the impression that Arcan is not ready for prime time.

                  I know distrowatch (https://distrowatch.com) is not the be-all-and-end-all, but it is interesting that the 2 top distro's there both have xfce as their main desktop atm ...

                      Xfce 4.13 is ready and available.https://packages.debian.org/search?k...al&section=all

                      I actually prefer not to use Google, I prefer DuckDuckGo.

                      Or am I not allowed to use anything else except Google on top of not being allowed to not use anything except Xorg now?
