  1. Good to see it’s still supported, I always liked Deepin DE just for the simple fact that it’s the only DE that actually supports fractional scaling properly without looking like an interpolated blurry mess. I desperately need 150% scaling (100 is too small, 200 is too large for my 1600p display). GNOME should borrow whatever Deepin is doing there.
