    Will there be a collaboration outside RedHat/GNOMEland?

    KDE, XFCE, COSMIC, Sway, Hyprland, LXQt, LXDE, Pantheon, Cinnamon, MATE, Budgie and other non-mainstream WM/DE projects.

      It's like that phrase, "When you think everyone else is an asshole, you're probably the asshole!", and how if you point out to the person that's complaining about everything about how they're just mean and angry, you're now the asshole. It really applies to my Dad. Everything triggers him. He's literally an "If they're not straight and white, they ain't right." kind of guy so I really, really do understand why the CoC is there.

      I can't tell all y'all the bigoted terms he's called me for having empathy towards others and I meet his criteria for being "right".

        Some of those things don't belong in the same sentence

          This hackfest is being organised by Igalia, not Red Hat. That said, the original Red Hat-organised hackfest also had people from KDE, Valve, Canonical, Collabora, System76, and several others - you can expect similar names to be at this one.

            Sounds like parents are failing if people don't know the definitions of those words.

              Not at all, the definition of nice differs vastly between families, between countries and between cultures. There are no world wide objective definitions for any of these.

                Why the fuck is everybody talking about the CoC? It wasn't mentioned at all.

                  Sir, this is phoronix. If things are not controversial, we'll make sure they'll become.

                    HDR work is legitimately promissing albiet slow as molasses. SDR on HDR is the main kicker, as long as this is handled well linux can storm the market for things like HTPCs.

                      It didn't support any per-window color management.

                      The Wayland color management and HDR protocols will enable HDR and SDR apps and apps with different color spaces to be displayed properly side by side on the same monitor. Linux has never had that.
                      Enable, yes. But unless you're running OLED or something with at least 1,000 dimming zones, they still won't be displayed properly.
                      Not Wayland's fault, of course. Still, keep your expectations in check.
