@sir Hi, is it possible to not use compositing under Wayland? Because if not, I think the added latency is a valid argument against it (though not all users care and I still think you’re doing a great job with sway and wlroots).

@papush this question is born from misconceptions about how graphics work on Wayland. We already have low latency and "removing" "compositing" isn't going to help

@papush not compositing amounts to copying pixels and copying pixels is going to worsen latency - most compositors don't have any copy operations at all
