    Part of me was hoping the delayed F-21 release would allow the team to focus on mature stability, rather than bleedingedgekitchensinkcandystoreitis. But then it wouldn't be Fedora, so what would be the point?

    You can always buy a redhat license if you want stability... Meantime, run F21, test it, break it -it's not like the thing is going to test itself when it's out. For stability, you run something other than the latest Fedora release.

    If all you need is stability, then CentOS is fine...no need to go all out and get RedHat. If, on the other hand, you need support, then by all means...

    Fedora has become very stable in recent releases.
    This approval only means that Gnome-on-Wayland will be included, not hat it'll be the only choice. Gnome on Xorg will be available just as all other DEs on Xorg.

    As a KDE user I'm saddened that KDE prioritised Qt 5 over switching to Wayland. Wayland is absolutely vital for Linux desktop, the actual Linux that most of us enthusiasts care most about, if its to break out of its ghetto. Valve recognise this, which is why I think they based their steam machine on Gnome as Gnome have put most effort into Wayland. This is why Canonical's treachery with their 1984 newsspeak style named Unity desktop should not be forgiven. Canonical is the enemy within, hence if it was a choice between my money going to Microsoft or Canonical I would give it to Microsoft.

    You do understand that KDE is based on Qt, and only Qt 5 supports Wayland, right?

    As for your trollish Canonical comment, I would suggest you keep to the subject; the forums admins tend to be give people some (too much) slack, but you'll earn yourself a ban in the end.
