    Free idea: create Vulkan cube demo written on Rust. Name it hat3r. Add the whole bunch of --my-next-XXX-wont-be-YYY for CPU/GPU/DE/compositors/etc. Even if one want to compile that demo from source then --my-next-pl-wont-be-rust must be specified. It must be fully functional demo when correct hater flags was provided.

              Why not? The m1 linux driver will definitely be open source, thus you won't have any trouble with sway.

              By the way it feels very strange not having any kind of --fuck-you in the command line flag for Nvidia GPUs, the two should go alongside each other.

                OpenSource, Yes. At the moment there's no GPU acceleration and I don't think apple is likely to let that happen.

                Be fun for sure to see if the linux M1 projects gets any traction, But can't help but to think of the nouveau project and the hurdle they've faced all this time.

                  "Titlebars now have a fixed height, they no longer resize depending on characters used in the title."
                  This was incredible annoying, glad it's fixed.

                    Do you have any information about Apple blocking such efforts like Nvidia does? Or is that pure speculation?
