        Somebody port Commodore KERNAL to x86, and then it will just be 24 KB.

          This must obviously mean private class fields as there is no other visibility scope than public before this change. Every class field in JS is public by default.

              This FUD and scaremongering. NPCs always tell you to wait for the next minor release. Simply not true.

              With Gnome folks they don't always seem to backport fixes to even serious issues once they're done with the first couple of point releases. After that you simply have to wait and pray that the next major release is going to fix your issues. Once I reported an issue with mouse pointer being captured / locked (with 100 % reproduceability) and had to wait for two major releases for it to be fixed. They probably rewrote some code and it was fixed by accident.

                Ironically, this has been a long term side project of mine. A small toy distro that is Wayland only, using a self-written WM/DE. Unfortunately systemd based, so I guess I get the bloat back :P

                  Gentoo with openrc and dwm can allegedly get you down to around my target range of 45mb of memory usage when starting the session. That would address nearly all areas of bloat except for X. I'm not sure if you could get Gentoo/openrc running with wayland only, but that would be an interesting experiment.

                    its true, as far as i know a lot of people that i know in Fedora IRC channel always used to an still do wait for the Point release than getting the .0 release, which is why there are point releases to fix up Bugs in the .0 release. ,

                      Yep, systemd is a bigger beast.. however, systemd provides more functionality, and better seamless integration of various system components, which brings higher costs.
