Claiming will be the year of the Linux desktop has become a running joke among me and my friends.

So I wouldn’t make such bold claims.

But other than that I am completely on board with what the author is saying. I come from the same background. Until just a couple years ago I had a Windows PC solely for gaming. Now I can’t remember when I last booted Windows on it.

Another weird side effect of this gaming revolution on Linux is that I prefer X11 over Wayland.

When Wayland became the default in Fedora I was on board, thinking it was the new cool thing. But gradually I realized that it’s really not ready for the big time. I still need X11 to share my desktop on MS Teams (thanks Microsoft for that btw), and I still need it for most games.
