    For example: someone writes you in a chat on Pidgin. There's NO way, without sound, to have a visual signal on this event. Because of the removal of these components:

    - application taskbar
    - systray
    Have you ever heard of notifications?

    Last time I checked desktop icons, menu bars, and the system tray are not Windows 95 features.
    In fact they're much older and still work perfectly well on every other major operating system and desktop environment

    Server Side Decoration does not mean decoration like KDE and Client Side Decoration does not mean headerbars like on Gnome.
    It purely means if one party or two parties should be responsible to draw the window. Not how the decoration looks.

    True but that's why it's such important news that it has better stability

    If GNOME is going to be like ANDROID ... learn ANDROID, at least they have a similiar systray.

    Will be start menu removed at GNOME 50 ?

    It's not 100% clear to me if that will fully replace EGLStreams or if it's just something extra in case of XWayland, but it certainly seems like it should.

    Nvidia is planning to release a driver based on GBM (yes, say good bye to EGLStreams mess). Then the "compatibility" problem will be gone. This means wlroots based compositors like Sway will automagically start to work with Nvidia GPU. 😊

    wlroots can take them a long way towards that, but the price would be forfeiting nVidia compatibility)
