    Yeah, that is how I envisioned it.

    Imagine if the Phoronix website had a Git commit embed functionality, so instead of a screenshot, it would embed the Git commit message as HTML with the blockquote element.

    People have the right to buy the hardware best suited for their needs.
    If Linux (as an ecosystem) doesn't work well enough with Nvidia, they'll just use Windows. And rightly so

    I think KDE developers had a similar attitude, even though weaker.
    Disappointing that others bent over to Nvidia's sleazy decisions!
    Nvidia is still garbage with no good open source driver, disrespecting the privacy, security, freedom and the right to have an environment as clean as possible (planned obsolence).

    Here's someone living under a rock and has not heard about Nvidia's legacy driver branch.

    And on the Windows side Nvidia still maintains current drivers for up to the Geforce 8 series released 15 bloody years ago. There's a damn good chance some people here were still wearing diapers during that time.

    It's easy to have more than 5 workspaces in total and I find it very annoying to have to use both hands to change workspace. I find it easier to have 1-9 on each monitor separately.


    Yeah. Sway is copying i3 behavior there.

    You should be able to accomplish that with some tedious configuration. You can pin workspace A1-A9 to monitor A and B1-B9 to monitor B, then set all the keybindings to change the A and B version simultaneously. (Separate with ; as I recall). Moving widows to another workspace may present a problem.

    Not to forget
    Code:
    WLR_RENDERER=vulkan
    . I have been running this for a while on the RADV driver (the AMDVLK driver is not working for some reason) and it works nicely!

    Even if they are fixed, it can be a bit messy. It's easy to have more than 5 workspaces in total and I find it very annoying to have to use both hands to change workspace. I find it easier to have 1-9 on each monitor separately. That's how it works in DWM and awesome, I've been able to configure BSPWM to work that way too, but now that I've switched to sway that's my biggest annoyance that I have yet to find a solution for.

    Sadly sway is now harder to get to run with Nvidia, it complains about some argb 888 or something like that and refuse to start, hope they make a egl patched version on aur soon.
