    What is the difference between the reuduced and the non-reduced iso other than that one is smaller?

    The smaller one doesn't have debugging symbols in the binaries, and all the -dev packages, and other development related packages are removed.

    If you're just using wayland, there shouldn't be a user visible difference between the two (except one uses less space)

    Edit: Just to clarify, if you need to sacrifice security to make Wayland work better - go for it.
    Provided that the users are warned of course!

    dd worked for me. Did you use /dev/sdx, and not /dev/sdx1 for example, as the 'of=' parameter? Also check that you didnt mess up if and of.

    Or loopback mount the .iso with grub2 and use so-scan/filename=$isofile as a kernel parameter to find the .iso from the kernel. Worked for me. No dd or seperate partition needed.

    Thanks, I downloaded the reduced one. And man it's awesome, I almost cried! After all these years the most annoying thing since back in the time when I used Beryl, the slow resizing of windows, is finally gone. I was also glad to see that EFL is already installed and that it is working perfectly. I liked the "Flip Page" test in particular. Hopefully this will eventually get integrated into an EFL pdf reader. Now I really can't wait for Fedora 20 or so when I can finally have a native Wayland desktop with Enlightenment. Developers, please hurry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Another little thing I noticed is that buttons in Gtk applications now have an animated hover effect. I don't know if this is because of the new Gtk version or just because of the theme, but it is nice.

    Just tested and... very enthousiastic!

    No tearings! (Even in videos!)

    Of course there were things that didn't work, but what works is great!
