Hopefully they will spend more time on various graphic related issue , opengl&directx, in the near future.
Mafia3 is still way too dark and other games fps are awefully low without thirdparty modules.

Is this part of the wine windows layout? And if yes, can it be used to work with CSD obligation of gnome wayland? (in cases where the application only has SSD)

Ahh, I was expecting an actual theme, but seems it's just some changed colors.

I wonder why they have done this?

No, it is actual theme.

How do you apply the theme? I don't see anything changing from the Windows 95 style interface after selecting "Classic Blue" in winecfg.
