    ernstp if kwin have any resources left they should consider how to work with mutter. Canonical benefits from this today.

      The fact that it took 8 years to get gnome to a usable point like this is ridiculous imo.

        Gnome 3 is usable since many years, with me being an example of a longtime user. I do have some contact with Xfce and KDE, but whenever I can choose, I do choose Gnome3. I pretty much like the basic Usability thoughts behind it, they do work out very well for me.

        I do agree, that gnome-shell has had quite some technical gripes over the years, but that's just one part of the puzzle...

          Usability depends on your system. Gnome has for a long time bogged down my laptops, and you can essentially forget running it on a raspberry pi without it being pointless. Even still on ubuntu 18.04 there is often animation slowdowns and cpu/ram spikes.

            Baguy you are talking about 18.04. The rest of us are talking 19.10.

            Please fast forward one and a half year. Thanks!

              I've never seen so much bullshit since debianxfce.

                  Have you tried recent Ubuntu 18.04.3 with all the updates to Mesa and Xorg also? I use it every day at work, not really noticing any problems...

                    19.10 isn't even out yet, and gnome 3.34 literally just landed. My comment does still stand even if it was fixed last year. 8 years is a long time for it to finally solve it's performance problems, which are a major issue, not a tiny little UI bug or something.

                      No idea, i've given up a few months ago trying to use it on my laptop. My I5-6300U struggled with gnome, and even my Ryzen 5 3500U laptop showed animation stuttering and intensive resource usage. I now use XFCE on my laptop. with Xrandr scaling.
