    Phoronix: There's Finally An Experimental Driver For Native Wayland Support Within Wine

    Alexandros Frantzis has announced the creation of a Wayland driver for Wine. This driver allows Windows GDI/OpenGL applications to run on Wayland compositors without any use of X11/XWayland...

    Finally. Really great achievement that should improve adoption of Wayland. Yeah, we have wine-wayland but without support for desktop applications (no GDI and OpenGL, only Vulkan full screen games). I'm going to check this in free time.

        Great work, this can squeeze out a bit more (especially to screen and imput latency) on Games.

          Is the Windows 98 look a consequence of this native Wayland support ? In that case it must be fixed or users will have nightmares !

            By default, wine uses a copy of the classic windows theme. You can use a different windows theme or tell it to use your GTK3 theme colors.

              But it still doesn't look like Vista/7 at least.

                I just build that wine branch from collabora and what should I say, it works just fine for what I tried so far. Great work.

                    Couldn’t Wine just use SDL2 for video/graphics, audio & input and thus ran natively where SDL2 runs natively?
