    They should now take a sane default ui like material instead of adwaita. My personal opinion, adwaita is just old looking

      I also find adwaita ugly.. they should look at solus for a nice modern theme..

        Adwaita with globally enabled Dark Theme is nice. At least it's better than Ubuntu's Ambiance, which looks the same since 10.10.

            Adwaita is not ugly, it's just KDE 10 years ago XD

              So this should help with power usage and performance? Will all the default gnome apps need to be rewrote to take advantage of Vulkan? I keep dabbling my toes into Wayland, but until Kodi works nicely without jitter and odd interface flashing.. I can't make the switch.

                looks better than modern KDE to be honest.

                So which desktop should i use to get mutter with nvidia on wayland and vulkan GTK support? Looking to move on from KDE.

                  I like the current Adwaita in gtk+ 3.22. It is very easy on the eyes.

                    So how do I use the Vulkan renderer? Some environment variable?
