    Do you drive down the road screaming obsceneties at drivers of cars you don't approve of?

    Looking from the outside, they seem to have made a conscious decision to base on the version of mutter used on the previous to current Ubuntu LTS. I don't know if they will stick to this, but this would mean in 2026 they will rebase to the mutter from 2024.

    Cinnamon doesn't have many developers. It's mostly leaning on GNOME to do some heavy lifting and eventually they rebase their forks and catch up. They will do that at some point for Pipewire too.

    Isn't the Cinnamon development more complex? Because Cinnamon depends on GTK3/GNOME and both continue to move away from each other.‚Äč

    GNOME's mutter still doesn't have support for HDR, so I doubt it'll be in Cinnamon in 2026. We can hope that Gnome will make it to 2026..

    The window manager of Cinnamon, which is called muffin, is currently based on GNOME mutter 3.36.9, from Ubuntu 20.04.x LTS, so it has fractional scaling integrated.

    When the next rebase will happen is still open, but it will be also in future based on mutter.

    "The desktop layout is similar to Gnome 2 with underlying technology forked from Gnome Shell."
    And i don't find with the github search any reference to KDE and Wlroots. So likely not
