    This is just C code. Javascript is only used as a glue language in GNOME Shell. Perhaps read the references next time?
    C or Rust or JS it doesn't matter, the product is the slow JS Shell, linux people are deslusional

        That doesn't make any sense. How do you attribute performance issues to Javascript Shell when the PR clears shows it to be entirely unrelated?

          That's just not true. It surely could be better, but at least it gets the basics right.

            Your definition of "old" might be slightly different to mine... XD

            2010+ is fairly current.

              You mean Wayland should work around the fact that the drivers on these devices suck ass? How about fixing the actual issue and writing better drivers (or some at all)?
              Stop making excuses for bad development. All other software manages to work around the "hardships" from dealing with non-consumer platforms. Why can't Gnome? How about I write an actual driver as soon as someone writes a desktop environment which is fit for purpose. Its not like they haven't had 20+ sodding years to get their shite together.

              If they won't do it, then they should get out of the way so that a better team can emerge from the community. Heck, if Gnome disappeared tomorrow, I might even give it a shot. I already have some experience from writing OpenCDE. In hindsight I should have continued development on it (even after being contacted by a consortium of companies for help getting CDE ready for an open-source release).

                Ubuntu with Gnome runs fine here on 2010 Thinkpad x220 with no lag or issues.

                    It eats your beloved OS for breakfast in term of performance.

                      I can't stand its spaghetti design, hyperlink options and inconsistency.
