The sad state of screen sharing on desktop Linux

Article note: This article isn't really "Linux" it's "Wayland." I'm still confused by how Wayland development was supposed to be all about addressing the accreted cruft in the X11 plumbing, so they built a minimal protocol that didn't address many even rudimentary use cases, and immediately set about accreting an even more disjoint set of plumbing parts. _Maybe_ Pipewire will work out well enough to standardize Linux AV plumbing around in a reasonable amount of time, but given that Pulseaudio did less and took over 12 years to be more useful than trouble, and Wayland itself is a decade into "Still not ready," I have doubts.
