I'm very happy with the progress made on GTK4 Rust bindings lately. I would appreciate if more people gave them a try to report broken/missing stuff. The bindings are available at github.com/gtk-rs/gtk4-rs & the docs at gtk-rs.org/gtk4-rs/gtk4/

Imagine there existed a cooperative dedicated to bringing GNOME forward, and its members worked full time on polishing the ecosystem.

If the designers and engineers announced their projects, and a communication team kept you posted of progress.

Would you throw money at it? And how would you contribute?

FOSS boys: phew I finally got my emails working on my phone, it took me a week, involved a soldering iron, and I had to write a patch for a library

Also FOSS boys: people choose the convenience of Apple/Google/Microsoft because they're lazy and stupid, anybody can switch to Arch and PostmarketOS and self-host everything
