    If Nautilus caches thumbnails, then it does VERY POORLY DONE to have to redo the cache every time unlike Dolphin, Explorer, Finder ... Nautilus is garbage in every way.

    Thanks for letting me know, though I always manually set up fifo/mailbox vsync anyway. So that Mesa MR unfortunately won't fix it.

    So it already arrived to Arch, and for what I can see.... It didn't change anything. I am not sure if it's because after an upgrade it recycles the old settings, but the version it reports is 40.0.0, but it looks, behaves and tastes exactly the same as 3.0. Literally the only difference is that my Wallpaper was gone and I had to select a different one.
    Pay attention to individual package versions. At least the repository that I'm using only has updated for some system components, but packages gnome-session and gnome-shell are still in version 3.38. The only major redesign is in Gnome Shell so you wouldn't notice much until it's updated too.

    You are wrong. Gnome 3 allowed virtual workspaces on external monitors via a setting, and that didn't change in Gnome 40. Multi monitor support in Gnome 40 is degraded, not improved, with external monitors and virtual workspaces both sitting on the same axis, compared to the previous situation where physical screens sit on the horizontal axis while virtual ones sit on the vertical axis. It's amazing how so many people can't see what's wrong with workspaces and physical screens both sitting on the same axis.
    To be fair, I only use Gnome on my university laptop, and barely (It usually just boots up my Qemu freeBSD VM with CDE and I work there 95% of the time). I only know that whatever goes to the secondary monitor, can only be one window and will use all the screen, so I always piled everything in the primary, with the odd Discord and Spotify in workspaces below. I'll check out how to change it if you say it's possible (or see the differences: it is an Arch installation and might have moved to 40 already). Main computer uses Gentoo, and Gnome while it works, tends to end bugging out on non systemd installs. Plus compiling it takes just a little bit more time than something like I3, CDE or Xfce4, specially on a 5 year old laptop, so not whiling to install it on my main computer :P

    Edit: Oh, sorry, I think I only just understood hat you meant.
    You meant the displayed graphic is first rendered on a "normal" resultion and then scaled up to match HiPDI instead or rendering in HiDPI directly, therefore giving you scaling artefacts?
    That might be but I cannot test as I don't have a HiDPI display / run everything at 100% scaling.
