    It's rather amazing that gnome developers released 16 versions of gnome 3, 8 years of work, without having proper development tools such as profiling in place...

      No internal profiling doesn't mean no profiling at all. It's surely nicer and mostly more comprehensive when you integrate that, but you're not without tools.

      Does anybody know any news on performance patches?

            This is cool. I would love to be able to install Wayland without XWayland and X.Org.
            I would love to be able to install GNOME without pulling in XWayland and X.org. Just pure GNOME on Wayland.

              I just hope most of van Vugt's performance fixes will make it into 3.34..

                Considering that I haven't seen a machine powerful enough to handle basic GNOME animations, I'd say it's self-evident. I don't get why people would want animations in the first place, though.

                  I wonder what will you do with your X11-only apps (or any future ones).

                  Also, does it really annoy you this much to even have the X11 packages in your computer?

                    I don't have so many X11-only apps. The few that I do have are probably being ported, so soon they will be even less.

                    No, not so annoyed, but its nice to have a clean system, to have a modern system, and to be free from legacy cruft.
