Since offering a reward for people to start a blog, a dozen people have sent me emails and mastodon messages asking me to pay up for the blog they created two months ago, or accept their lazy 100 word article about how they set up their "blog", or for their non-technical blog about being discriminated against for their flavor of the week and I'm a priviledged asshole for not giving them money to support their flavor...
Listen. Don't be that guy. You're ruining a good thing.
My experience on Wayland so far (Sway) – AN3223's Blog – Linux and stuff
Most Programming is UI
Q: What approach is better?
(A) Implementing window decorations once, and getting a consistent look and feel for all applications
(B) implementing window decorations hundreds of times for every different application which calls for them, each with their own look and feel for a patchwork desktop of inconsistent madness, so that when any of them hangs it's impossible to minimize, move, or close them
Now, choose carefully, then never change your mind and work deliberately to block any attempts to find a middle ground
What kind of mentality leads to a healthy and productive community of collaborating open source projects?
(1) We wrote a protocol that allows both parties to choose what suits their design goals best. This allows for maximum compatibility between all of our projects. It was hard work getting it standardized, but we put in the time for the benefit of the community.
(2) PSA: IF YOU DON'T SUPPORT CLIENT-SIDE DECORATIONS, YOU'RE WRONG
A counter-PSA about Wayland: if you think CSDs are stupid: you're right! We have a protocol which lets you avoid implementing stupid things:
We fought long and hard for this protocol and GNOME can shove it. You're welcome!
