          it's based on wlroots, so it's effectively quite compatible to swaywm, afaict

            Yes because every project group has the same members and finance source for resources.
            Besides, splitting has it's benefits called failures, those failures gets recorded so the succeeding projects won't trip on a minefield.

              I get where you're coming from, but I respectfully beg to differ. Compared to Windows or MacOSX where you get no options, Linux choice is among the best things that it has to offer. I get to build my system exactly as I want it. That's liberating and a fundamental part of FOSS software. I wouldn't be here if Ubuntu was the only option.

                This is due to lack of cooperation, because not everyone is happy with a single thing (e.g. GNOME vs. KDE or sysvinit vs. systemd).

                  Fedora. But 0.5 version will be only available in Fedora 33.

                  For current Fedora 32 you can find it in COPR: https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/atim/wayfire/

                    this is something stupid about Linux and hate it why there too many Compositor and Display manager?
                    is it just to feel quirky ?
