    Sway + XWayland has a far lower overhead than Xorg on the Panfrost driver, so as well as better performance, power consumption should be lower during idle.

    Though the implementation is currently somewhat buggy, Weston now supports using hardware planes rather than GL composition, which should help with power consumption even more. Hopefully this will soon be integrated into other compositors.
    Sounds awesome. I think there was some generic library aiming to assist with that, libliftoff ors omething.

    Hi everyone. Live wallpaper/Screensaver (or a short looped avi) like Aquarium was in early Linux distributions. "Sway" has this feature. Apparently, Mutter in Ubuntu (Debian) is a problem for programmers who would like to implement this feature. I got this information from a programmer on his project in Gitlab (Sway add-on). Some of the local users may know: Is live wallpaper possible under Wayland (from Mutter)? For me this is: "must have"
    btw. "Komorebi" has stopped on Ubuntu 16 ..

    Don’t worry about it. Canonical got people working on GNOME and Debian.
    Well, Ubuntu 20.04 is past Debian import freeze, which means no new packages get in. But, there might be exceptions...

    I'm currently running Ubuntu 19.10, and then plan to upgrade to 20.04 LTS, and keep running it, until I buy a new laptop (recently I bought Lenovo A485 2700U PRO from warehouse sale, really good price).

    There were times, when I was running Arch Linux... But, I ain't got time to maintain rolling release, anymore.

    Nobody really cares because the xwayland bits would need to come down the line at first and there is no plan when the next X will be released.
    No Xwayland changes required for this.

    lumks That’s not a blocker. If GNOME needs a new X release then we get a new X release.
    Sadly we don't. There is much more stuff in x-devel that would improve gnome / wayland. From xwayland fullscreen fixes, to tearing prevention improvements, to performance fixes, to EGL-Stream support/improvements, to async-loadup improvements, to input improvements. There is SO MUCH that would help to improve gnome experience. Yet there isnt even a target year of release.
    It might not be a blocker. Its just another feature of gnome, that is of less use, because the xorg-bits are missing.
