    GNOME 3.34 will be a game changer. Figuratively and literary.

    3.36 even better. The downstreams really come together now.

          If I can have a dream, I wish the desktop icons support was finally completely fixed in 3.36. By this I mean 100%. feature complete and stable to be at long last on par with the old versions of Nautilus that managed desktop icons themselves.

            As someone who hasn't used the extension for desktop icons, what are the shortcomings at the moment?

                  It's buggy, often it's not possible to empty the trash.
                  Drag & drop between the desktop and applications doesn't work, at least not consistently. This includes Nautilus windows.
                  Mounted volumes (USB etc.) don't appear on the desktop.

                  NB: this is all in Wayland sessions. Maybe it behaves better under X11, that I don't know.

                    tildearrow Yeah those as well. GNOME got many kinds of downstreams now because they are more than a desktop environment.

                    GNOME do GTK and a very mature flatpak runtime. They also happen to influence wayland very much (shared code and mindset). Even themers like Yaru now consider Adwaita to be upstream..

                    Here’s a nice blog from Elementary spelling the future. Sounds like a happy downstream
