    I’m trying to think of complaints about how this is really stupid but I can’t come up with any so I will have to install Wayland and try to get this working with my Nvidia graphics card (or not that seams like a big pain)

      My first reaction was also to make fun, but it kinda seems neat and it’s different, which I welcome. Really hope there’s plans to support one strip across monitors cause that would be kind of dope to look at.

      Edit: also I’ve had a pretty easy time with a 2070 running Wayland once the drivers and wm are right. I did manage to mess up my old nixos generations trying to get started and changing things around lmao. Landed on hyprland, and it’s smooth.

      What are your thoughts on paperwm so far compared to more traditional tiling WMs?

      I’m more of a Wayland person, so I’ve been thinking about trying out niri for a while now. I kinda like their nix flake and sloc-count (which make me think the dev(s) are pretty competent) and have used said flake as a reference for trying out a few other Wayland compositors written in rust on nixos so far, but the idea of scrollable tiling overall seems weird, so I’m hesitant to try it out myself rn :/

        I use paperwm on Wayland gnome. If you like a scroll wm, is extremely easy to find out by installing the extension. It’s one click away. It might not be for everybody and has a few glitches, but fits my workflow better than other paradigms.

        It tried out niri and found it identical to paperwm in most aspects. However, I like gnome and its features, so I missed those in niri. On the other hand niri didn’t bring me anything new. It is also difficult to install and configure and requires manual recompiling. I’ll certainly revisit it in a more advanced stage, should it reach such, but for now I’m perfectly fine with paperwm.

    Interesting! If I used this I would probably just fullscreen every window and scroll between them lol

    Didn’t know something like this exists. Still confused what the benefit to ordinary dynamic tiling?

    I downloaded it and tried it out. I honestly haven’t used just a WM in years so I’m very excited but completely lost haha. It was pretty well out the box but I need to install waybar
