    Phoronix: ChamferWM Still Appears To Be The Most Capable Vulkan-Powered X11 Tiling Window Manager

            Define "feature complete" in the context of compositor?

              Yeah it sucks that you have to write your own equivalent of X-windows every time you want to write a "window manager" using wayland ...

                  You don't. You can choose one of libmutter, libweston or wlroots and build from there. Maybe KDE has some equivalent as well.

                    You really don't have to write your own equivalent of X-Windows.

                    There was a time when you had to write your own Wayland implementation. Now you can choose between Wayland implementations or choose to write your own.
