    I've been using sway for a year after decades of using your regular stacking window managers and I can say I'm loving it now. I miss, however, the better integrated experience you get from desktop environments. Pop os' tiling extension looks very intriguing, but it doesn't work on wayland at the moment and gnome has performance problems on multi display setups that I just can't deal with.

    Yes it is. So it's like sway, just for a single application only

    fragmentation implies anyone is going to use this. It's going to be used by the same people who use IceWM or other basic building blocks to make their own GUI.
    Everyone else will still keep using the same DEs that exist

    Weston does not work on two of my four Debian 10 installations, so this Weston-based compositor is out of the question for me.

    Besides, TAIWINS does not solve the main problem I have been having with Weston: no taskbar for window management, and no way to show all application windows in a Mac-style Expose when the workspace is cluttered with tons of windows, while Gnome Wayland and Plasma Wayland have the WinKey and Ctrl-F9 respectively for that.

    Thus I'm still stuck with Gnome Wayland or Plasma Wayland for a usable stacking Wayland compositor.

    Wayland hasn't been all that usable or stable for novice users.

    Wayland compositors sad fact:
    99% Tiling
    1% Stacking (where Gnome is the only stable one and not missing at least taskbar/dock)

    That's wlroots based is it not?
