    So some X11 support might end soon.

      Quite some work on removing the X11 dependence:

        IMO more importantly, Gnome 3.36.2 has been released, with a bunch of important fixes for e.g. GS/Mutter

          treba Yup, lots of important stuff in 3.36.2!
          Debian already got most of it.

              Mutter has a fix for screencasting non-maximized windows and various other fixes.
              In Mutter "Wayland compositor" the code is still no cleaned and unblocked. So I repeat, yes but let a wise man tell us:
              Why Gnome entertains e.g. GDM and other login screens instead of LifeWallpaper. Is problem too complicated for them?

              I don't want to be mean but many people are waiting for it.

                I really like GNOME. However, I think it is better with some extensions such as Dock-to-panel and ArcMenu.
                I look forward to being able to run GNOME purely on Wayland without X.

                Some things though:
                • Android and iOS have a much nicer bottom-up animation than the one on GNOME when bringing up the dash.
                • macOS have a graphing/plotting calculator, and Microsoft is developing one for Windows.
                • Windows Camera have built-in head tracking and can take picture when it detects you smile.
                • The camera effects in GNOME Cheese are very shitty, and not cool like Snapchat or Facebook Messenger.
                • Windows have a 3D viewer app to view 3D models.
                • Windows comes with Windows Phone Connector app.
                • Windows have a screen snap tool to easily select an area (GNOME have it too with GNOME Screenshots) but on Windows its quickly available in the right side of the screen menu.
                • Windows lets you easily add to calendar from the right side of the screen menu.
                • Windows puts itself into "focus mode" when you launch games.
                • Windows have nice hotkeys like WinKey+E to start the File Explorer.
                • In GNOME Nautilus you can "star" folders, but only some, not all.
                • Gedit chokes/freezes on large files.
                • Gedit does not support multi-caret text editing.
                • The emoji finder widget is bad at finding the emojis I search for by name.

                  Some of those features are too much for the GNOME developers to take. Come on.


                  ...also, are you gonna compare GNOME to Windows? You should try that other desktop first if you are going to do that.

                    i wait for other features like: Freesync support in all apps and all cases. and VR support.

                    are you sure to write in a gnome topic? remember you need save space for not touching your feelings.
