    Nvidia and x11.. That’s a very limited scope.

    Ubuntu seem to care a lot about gamers on the coming Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
    The 20.10 will be better.

      "...as it was no longer serving its intended purpose with the current state of Mutter's code."

      Also, thile title should read "Canonical Dev continuew to clean up Gnomes shoddy code base".

        The majority of Linux gamers you mean ?

          You do know that most of the discrete GPUs in the market are Nvidia, don't you? Also, running Nvidia on Wayland is still painful and buggy. Thus the scope is not limited at all in terms of population.

            then 21.04, 21.10, 22.04, 22.10, ...

              Do you know if it's going to land for 3.34 as well? It'd be a shame to miss this release.

                So unless it will cause last minute regressions it will be part of 3.34.

                Who knows they might even pull some of the few remaining performance patches as well.
                Thank you 144Hz , didn't know that and I thought they were in a feature freeze state. Truly hope you're right about the remaining performance patches. It'll make 3.34 a really great release.

                  GNOME's code base is ironically pretty clean, as is Mutters.

                  There's some decision decisions that made sense when GNOME/Mutter was an X window manager, but not when it's its own compositor/display server.

                    Oh no, I must hurry and plug my NVIDIA card again to bring a fix to KWin...

                    I could ask to get access to mainline the same way Daniel did but the problem is that they hate closing windows in Present Windows and unredirection...
