    I just hope it will eventually use the native decorations of the desktop environment instead of the Windows classic ones like in the screenshots.

        Wayland sure makes things interesting and modern. It's really amazing how the Collabora devs actually articulate and educate/discuss the details for the Wayland merge requests (answering all the questions in a satisfactory way) in Wine.

                Given that 99.999% of usage of wine is games, I don't think it's really importable or noticeable.

                  There is a reason for it back in early 2000 Collabora employed their first technical writer to act as proof reader for all the developers commits because Alexandre Julliard had got sick of having to spending time working out what the objective of the code was by reading the code as at times this causes problem of is this code bug or is this intentional with no idea due to the commit comment not being quality.

                  Yes the technical writers at Collabora don't get their name in the commits even that the quality of readability of the commits by general people and the maintainer is based on their good work.

                  So its not the developers why this is so good. Yes lots of open source projects are critical short of technical writers to proof read and write documentation. Yes having a technical writer proof read stuff can be major improvement and this is demoed in the history of wine project commit comments. Good programming skill and good technical writing skill is not commonly the same person.

                    Really I would like to see the new xdg-desktop-portal accent color support. There is a reason for the Windows classic boarder. Windows boarders under MS windows are in fact client side rendered this is why windows applications can in fact add their own buttons to the title bar.

                    So most windows application compatibility like it or not is the windows classic boarder. Most people don't notice under X11 with wine that allowing the windows manager to draw boarders in winecfg is a checkbox that has to be turned on.

                    Remember KDE wayland support server side decorations but your gnome wayland and the like expects client side decorations as well.

                    https://github.com/libsdl-org/SDL/issues/8185 then there are different libdecor glitches.

                    There is a reason why I said about xdg-desktop-portal accent color and just make Windows classic item. Aligning the accent color it would not be as miss matched if for some reason the client side decoration library decides to go south as it has many times before..
