[question] servo as a desktop UI/UX layer?
Created by: leeoniya
Sorry if this is a dumb question/idea, as I know very little about servo's OS-level dependencies.
Is something like utilizing servo for a desktop/ui layer in Redox even feasible (similar to what gaia is for b2g  or Electron )? I imagine it would be a huge amount of work, but it would eliminate the need to re-invent or reimplement flexbox (eg for window tiling), CSS animations/transitions, shadows, etc. You could potentially offload the entire UI design to designers and quickly spawn a theming community. An OS where the UI/UX is 100% styleable with little friction would be incredibly cool.
