HamishTechnically my main screen resolution is 1680x1050 and my second head is 1024x768. Should we change the question to ask for your primary or main resolution? I can not be the only one with different sized screens.

Same case here, 1920x1080 and 1280x1024 on secondary monitor. I just assumed that the question referred to my monitor I use for gaming, thus 1920x1080.

This monitor is also 144/180Hz with Gsync, not sure if such information are of interest to be added to the survey though.

I'd also be interested in variable refresh rate/Gsync. A propos, I used to like the question of the month feature back then...

The monitor question is clear enough already isn't it?

"Main Gaming Resolution"

Ah, so it is. Sorry, it has been a long time since I changed my answers, but the PC Info display just says resolution on its own. I guess that is what I am asking about instead.

14....
I don't personally think it's worth adding. The dual-boot question could be changed to "Do you use the same computer for Windows gaming as well?"
Is it really important if it's the same computer or not?
A more interesting result could be the answer to: Do you also play games on Windows/PS/...? And: If yes, which is your favourite / most used platform?
Could be interesting... or not .... I'm just curios....

tmtvlThe majority of users here are on a single monitor, so Wayland usage may be decently high. Unfortunately there are some issues with WL multihead implementations on GNOME and Plasma.

FWIW, multi-monitor support is quite decent here on sway (I use it at work, dock/undock often, use projectors, etc), and I don't recall many issues on KDE nor GNOME.

Hah! I used to have pretty much the same screen resolutions. Got rid of (gave away) my primary monitor to upgrade it, but at the same time, a GPU lockup I was having quite often went away. Unsure if that was related, I've decided to do with the small screen for now ^^"

Thanks a lot for the stats, Liam! I'm eager to see the results!

Well, it's kind of a tricky subject. The way that KDE and GNOME do it under Xorg is to basically combine the monitors into a single big screen that points at the same desktop. That's also why in KDE you can't configure virtual workspaces to switch out independently on each display, as the workspace is shown to the single screen that unites the two monitors.
And they haven't fixed it for Wayland. I can imagine sway working well, though, as it's basically just i3 for Wayland, and i3 doesn't work like KDE and GNOME do.

Guess who forgot to upload the new chart generation <- this guy. Apologies, the new charts to show desktop use on x11 and wayland will be in April's stats.

Yeah, it's basically one virtual desktop per screen. I can just switch the focused one to the right/left/top/bottom screen with a shortcut (I chose ctrl-meta-arrow, meta-arrow is to move focus, meta-shift-arrow to move the window around. I like my shortcuts nice and consistent ).

Where it differs from i3, though is that (to my knowledge), i3's screen setup is managed trough xrandr/xorg.conf, whereas in sway it's there in the config file, which makes it quite easy and reliable. I also have shortcuts to rotate the screen in there... Though I guess you could achieve the same with xrandr, it makes it easy to apply something on the focused screen. The lack of a "primary display" hasn't bothered me at all.

Thanks for the bits on KDE and GNOME. With more time...
