People come up with red herrings of things that will surely happen if we allow CSD while ignoring the facts that show that on other OSes they seem to be doing fine
I'm somewhat staggered by this comment. I don't know which world you live in, but it doesn't seem to be the same one as me. I can't speak about OS X, but client side window decoration causes massive problems on Windows in the real world. Further, the very concept seems fundamentally flawed because it assumes that all applications will be written using an appropriate toolkit, which just plain isn't true. It isn't true now, it hasn't been true for the last 30 years, and it won't be true in the future. Unlike many X fans, I'm not opposed to Wayland. But I'm very strongly opposed to the way it's going about some things. Notably removing my control over my environment.
