Variations:
Wayland: (deprecated)
wm: wayfire > sway
screenshots: grim
image viewever: imv > geeqie
partition manager: gparted
screen locker: swayidle + swaylock
notifications: mako
background: azote > swaybg
bar: waybar
menu: wofi
backlight: brightnessctl (requires root or special access)
Other applications not substituted will require xwayland server to be run
hopefully as the wlroots project moves on and wayland desktop standardization
progresses there will be less retrocompatibility issues.
The main reasoning behing ditching X11 as a protocol is to provide a better
expirience for laptop users, especially regarding battery life.
Qt based applications: (nope it will quickly become kde)
global configuration file kinda like the windows registry
Registry:
1) The setting appliction can be either run as root or as the user, in the first case
it will operate on the global settings databse and in the latter on the local
(per user) database
2) the global databse and its "setters" operate in the /etc/ and /proc/ subdirectories and files
whereas the local database and "setters" operate in the respective user's home directory
3) the program then generates plain text files that are symlinked to their respective place

Wayland: (deprecated)
wm: sway > wayfire
clipboard: clipman
screenshots: grim + slurp
image viewever: imv
logout menu: wlogout (requires systemd)
screen locker: swayidle + {swaylock, swaylock-effects (manual installation)}
swayidle requires manual compilation: option -Dlogind=disabled
notifications: mako
background: azote > swaybg
azote requires changes in /usr/bin/azote: change python3.6 to 3.8
bar: waybar > {wf-dock,swaybar} + i3blocks
waybar requires libappindicator
menu: wofi > bemenu > sgtk-menu (manual installation) > nwg-launchers (manual)
backlight: acpilight (needs udev rule)
randr: kanshi > wdisplays > wrandr (both need manual installation)
