    So many potential Gnome users hate the file picker and Nautilus, but they probably haven't reached rock bottom regarding user loss yet. Though I don't dare to say if they actually will act once they do reach it.

    Nautilus and the GNOME file picker is terrible if you ask me. Yeah, it look nice, but in terms of usability it annoys me all the time. To me it worked better when I could just enter or modify path. I know I can press / to start typing a path, but then it's not very intuitive to navigate and I usually do something else than I intended. When on GNOME, I simply use terminal instead, because it's easier.

    At least if Nemo can be made to work under GNOME, I wouldn't want to go back to their file manager.

    I built a latency tester similar to the one described in this post: https://thume.ca/2020/05/20/making-a-latency-tester/. I measured latency of two terminals running cat and my nvim setup, three editors and one Wayland-native SDL2 game painting on frame callbacks and constantly. The latency tester repeatedly types and erases the a letter, and measures the time between sending the a key and the monitor brightness starting to change.
    Wow, latency tester is amazing! It would be also very interesting to measure latency on Xorg(KDE, GNOME, etc), Windows 10
