    Looks like their plans for a GUI option to try out Wayland failed, especially for non-intel video cards.

      Apparently you didn't understand the plan

        ...but we hope to rally a bit in order to get it to a state in F20 where we can at least have our GDM Wayland session working.
        This just reinforces what I said, doesn't it? Oh wait, a "GDM Wayland session working" may mean whatever.

          It also talks about an easy to test Wayland preview.

            For developers, yes. NOT for end users. There was never any plan to push Wayland for end users atleast until Fedora 21.

              How come the wireless settings need so many more clicks to change settings?
              This seems a step backwards in my opinion.

                Are you referring to the installer? desktop environment? How many clicks did it take before and how many does it take now? who knows

                  Does steam and steam games work without problems in Fedora? Will the kernel be updated to 3.12?

                    The Gnome Notification centre, it used to list available WiFi networks and allow you to turn on/off WiFi from the desktop, now that's all buried in the settings application.

                      Not true. Click on the wifi connection that is active and you will get a menu that allows you to toggle it easily.

                        3.12, yes. Fedora's update policy is at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Updat...kernel_package. Steam is available in RPM Fusion. Since they bundle everything in a single runtime, distribution specific problems are unlikely.

                          What about new connections? I know you have to dive into the settings panel to connect to a new WiFi network.

                            Yet another incorrect assertion. If you don't know, just look at it. It takes a few seconds to verify that you are wrong. The same menu I referred to earlier has three options, 1) select network 2) turn off/on 3) wifi settings

                              None of those options were available when I was using my desktop. Fedora never gave the option to install proprietary firmware (which is highly inconvenient and should be offered like Ubuntu does), although it detected I had WiFi there were no options in the menu.

                              EDIT: Fedora doesn't let you choose where to install the bootloader with the GUI installer any more either, which prevents me from running it since I have to use a 3rd party bootloader that only recognises bootloaders on the first partition.
