      What kind of RETRO thing is that inside the kernel?

      (jk, I know you mean REPOTLINE)

        You do mean RETPOLINE, right??? Or is there both RETPOLINE and REPOTLINE? A quick google doesn't make it clear, since it could easily be typoed, as we've seen.

          From my conversation with KDE developers - don't be too excited about adaptive sync support in the kernel. It will take a long time still for Wayland compositors to start supporting it. Kernel support is important of course, but for end user to benefit from it, it should be supported throughout the whole stack.

Even current embedded hw is enough fast to run X. They are implementing X features desperately after years of development. It will be never ready, poor design. Nobody supports it, you need to have the Xwayland wrapper.
            Gaming or not, compositors should be aware of the feature, in order for applications to use it.

              I needed a good laugh this morning dude, thanks!

              I for one am looking forward (still) to a nice secure by design, every frame is perfect desktop experience that X could never deliver. and heck, just as soon as my chosen DE gets it all the bugs ironed out I will use it in anger.
