    Phoronix: Way-Cooler Is Still Around As An i3-Inspired Wayland Compositor Written In Rust

    When it comes to having an i3-compatible Wayland compositor, Sway manages to capture much of the limelight, but Way-Cooler continues to advance as an alternative compositor...

    I see from the screenshot that the user has an Intel Core i7-6700HQ and 15937MiB of RAM. His or her hardware is Way-Cooler than mine.

        I am after a minimal WM as DWM. I3 is too bloated and RAM hungry for just handling windows as it task! I fear that both Sway and Way-Cooler are too. As it is only natural to bloated system require too much RAM and time from end-users!

          Ehm... Wayland is dying, and X.Org lives! At least, that's what some said in comments of different article about X.Org.

          Or, well, why there of Wayland compositor? Is not Wayland dying?

            Please give absolute numbers or it will just stay as an opinion (which is equally fine). The reason I am skeptic is because some people find over 1 GB of RAM as "RAM hungry" which to me is absolutely outrageous. If you have less than 4 GB of RAM, you are out of the modern cycle of the comfort zone for new and modern technologies for your computer (it can work but it's just going to be harder further on).

            A system can be bloated, but then you report your findings and engage/communicate to improve the System/Distribution/Application (and for everyone else). Don't have time, well I guess wait until someone else does...

              I hear you brother! You are more than welcome to start using Openbox. It's everything a power user needs and nothing else!

                You see, I can afford to build a setup like that, used monitors between 17-22 inch are cheap, as is old Radeon cards with 5 to 6 outputs, BUT:

                  What do you consider bloated? I'm using i3 and checking in htop it's only using 112M virtual, 12M resident, 10M shared.
