I would like to know why all the i3 users in this forum have not yet moved to sway :slight_smile:

No reason for me to move. You have a good reason for me? Why you think i3 users should move :thinking::blush:

humans are creatures of habit, and… i do try it out more then one time… but it will need to rewrite a lot of configuration i have on my i3 where i do tinker configs for a long time now…


there are some more config options available.
I had used some, that I did not find in i3, but sincerely I do not remember anymore which ones :smiley:

but, why not move, since wayland is the future, I suppose :slight_smile:

are you sure that these configs are not working in sway?
I had no problems moving, but my i3 .config was simple :slight_smile:

everything xorg related and also some of the i3 configs are not working…


wayland maybe the future … it away far future :grin: so look like i not go anywhere soooooooon :wink:

still i have a interest in sway :+1:


but sooner or later have we to leave xorg and switch to Wayland?

Probably unless someone takes over xorg development. AFAIK xorg isn’t really being developed anymore

Yes, later.

Personally, I’m hoping GNU/Hurd will be ready before then, so I can say goodbye to Linux. :rofl:


I’ve not tried it but I’ve read about it. Supposedly i3 with wayland. And I don’t really care about wayland specifically. Any other reason to try it?

It’s installed on my computer, and I pop over to it from time to time to see if it’s improved.

Never had a good experience. Although moving around and managing windows seems to be somewhat smoother, there’s a whole host of other bugs that just crop up. My mouse shows up half the time, and works less than that.

exactly, if you do not care about wayland there no reason to try it :slight_smile:
there are some extra configuration options, but it’s almost i3 on wayland

I’ve moved to wayland, that’s the reason I’m using it, happy with it :slight_smile:

until now (6 months or so with swaywm) I have not encountered bugs or problems that I remember of :slight_smile:

I haven’t quite figured out, what is so special about Wayland?

sincerely :slight_smile:
I do not know :smiley:

but sooner or later it will replace Xorg, that’s why I’m already using it.
and I see no reason to not use it already on my laptop, since I have not experienced problems so far.
