    Obvious troll is obvious.

      This is some really weak trolling, dude. The code didn't even come from Sony.

        Poor BO$$. I guess It's hard to stay on the losing side. :-)

          Wait, weren't you just trolling about how Windows is where it's at and all Linuxes are just toys for geeks? Can't you even maintain internal consistency within your own fanfiction?

          On topic: it's good to see hardware support on Wayland improving. It's obvious that the future of the Linux desktop is Wayland, no matter what distractions certain corporate entities attempt to create.

            i seen a new video Youtube of Wayland running on a tablet using the Sailfish OS so you can say Hardware's is getting supported fast

              Shouldn't this be something configurable anyway? I mean, maybe Sony touchpads have some sort of hardware or firmware implementation of virtual buttons on their touchpads, but I would think having some sort of generic "virtual-button" config under the touchpad/mouse menu in (for instance) gnome would be nice. That way, you wouldn't be limited to just left and right click, but could also do middle click, switch desktops/apps, or other common actions without having to press a key at the same time. Or, at the very least, you'd be able to adjust the size of the buttons so you don't accidentally touch them, or fail to touch them because the area is too small.

              Sure, it'd be a novelty--not everyone has a touchpad with enough space to reserve for virtual buttons like this, but it's an idea.
