The results of the Third Hyprland Census
A while back we've conducted the third hyprland census, now it's time to reveal the results. No PDF this time because 1) I am lazy and 2) nobody was using them. Straight to the point, no bullshit.
As usual, we start with the people.
Not much has changed, again, males under 25. What a surprise.
I've added a new question there just to see whether the survey spreads outside Hypr Development. Unsurprisingly, no.
The amount of r/unixporn goes down (from 56% to 44%) and youtube goes up to 22%. Not a surprise, again, as the entirety of r/unixporn knows about Hyprland by now, with some just refusing to acknowledge its superiority.
Week of Hyprland. The population of Hyprland-only daily drivers is increasing. 65% -> 73%.
I am unable to get it working on Fedora.
Need screen sharing for work and it's still not very good with Nvidia
Heard you need a patch or two.
I've got an nvidia card, and one day it just went black and stopped working.
Novideo at its finest
poor integration w xwayland
I think this was made before
force_zero_scaling was impl'd
waiting for ipc to support background window title change events :P
Debian doesnt have hyprland pkg and i dont want to build from souce every update or two
Actual changes this time, wow.
Last time, 61% voted for eyecandy, 19% for configurability, the rest were very fractured.
This year, we get a lot of people who just commented "everything", (thanks) but also we can see performance is stagnant. No wonder, it won't be with 0.28.0 though hehehehe
Bugs are decreasing as usual, this time from 29% to 16%, but the "lack of stability" option could be treated as the same. "There is none" is growing, nice. Performance has a negligible change.
Interesting, as bugs have been equalized by "more features". I wonder what do people even want by this point to be honest from a tiling window manager, lol. Performance has gained some voters (7% -> 17%) and has already been addressed and staged for 0.28.0. :)
More people support Hyprland now, expected as the project grows. The distribution did not change significantly.
From this question onwards, these are all new.
We'll see how this moves over the censuses. So far, 8-9 seems pretty good.
It's nice to see that at least 20% of the people made a sane choice to use Hyprland.
Threw in just out of curiosity. 70% of people would not complain, interesting.
We did get a mascot, even if 42% voted for no. :)
Community is growing, wants wayland to be cool, especially the non-de experience.
I continue delivering, it seems.
Thank you to all of you for all the support over the months and to everyone who participated, as usual.
