Hoas. Thanks for your replys. I'm still not convinced that wayland is ready for Debian stable but somewhat reasured I won't be effected by it at least for the next few years. Time will tell. As for bloat! It's not libreoffice that's bloated it's the browser :-)

2.1 MiB + 554.5 KiB = 2.7 MiB icewm
2.1 MiB + 844.0 KiB = 2.9 MiB tint2
3.2 MiB + 100.0 KiB = 3.3 MiB hald
3.7 MiB + 276.5 KiB = 3.9 MiB dhclient (2)
2.4 MiB + 1.7 MiB = 4.1 MiB lilyterm
3.6 MiB + 621.0 KiB = 4.2 MiB wicd-monitor
4.7 MiB + 639.0 KiB = 5.3 MiB wicd
8.5 MiB + 486.0 KiB = 9.0 MiB bash (4)
9.4 MiB + 7.3 MiB = 16.8 MiB Xorg
65.1 MiB + 2.3 MiB = 67.4 MiB soffice.bin
251.0 MiB + 9.0 MiB = 260.1 MiB seamonkey

The 1980s called — they want their hardware enumeration software back :mrgreen:

But seriously: very impressive, well done.

I have here a perfectly usable Sway with swaybg and Waybar, all running on Buster. Standard config for any i3wm user. The only newer compile lib you need so far is json-c, but it's easy to build.

Best things about Waybar are that it's using nearly identical syntax to i3status, it comes with sane default config file, with added bonus of having tray icons.
As a reminder, GNOME doesn't have tray icons by default. Sad.

If GNOME on Wayland isn't ready for Buster for you, remember that you have other options.

Depends on how stable Wayland is. Both stable as in "not buggy", but also "stable in development". Will there be large changes in Wayland in the future? If yes, then I say no, it's not suitable to be default. (And yeah, the same goes for Gnome.)
