    Do you want things to happen faster? It won't happen if you complain here, but it will happen if you help development. Don't you want to do it? Do not complain. This is free software, where so many people commit to it every day, don't you like it? Pay and go to Microsoft or Apple!
    We should have more respect for those who help, develop and give their time to a community. Personally I always have great respect, be it Gnome, KDE, Xfce or other ....

    ok, nice to see we've sorted xwayland case. what's next? firefox wayland client should be compositor or not?

    as already mentioned - no gtk3 or qt4 app will simply support wayland if app itself is linked with libx11 and calls its api besides toolkit. and many apps do

    that's what "firefox is gtk3" means, it is used by application. unlike gtk2 or qt
