    Hm, I think I've been hit by that bug. I minimized some windows and they never came back. Didn't see any error message, I thought it was just Plasma refusing to bring the windows back.

        Wake me up when video acceleration and gsync work in wayland and I can run games with gamescope.

          It works, it's just not very good in practice (to put it very mildly).
          Only thing that isn't accelerated these days is X11 EGL backends in XWayland. I wonder what's the status about that.

            there isn't much of a need to upgrade at this time.
            Well, of course there isn't. Who's even expecting NVIDIA to put a worthy upgrade anyway?

              In your defence...there is not much of a choice. All AMD even worse to get.

                What's wrong with that? Optimus works pretty well nowadays in every possible configuration (PRIME/revese PRIME/render offload etc.) and if you don't like it you can just use the iGPU and not even install the driver. Usually you can even drive a second monitor with the iGPU through a USB-C->HDMI adapter if the HDMI port is wired to Nvidia.
                Plus, now your beefy Nvidia GPU is left over for use in a VM, which is something that is officially supported now. Or on-dand compute workloads if that's more your style.
                YMMV, but I'm quite happy with my laptop.

                  They are fixing their driver for KDE Plasma?
                  LOL!
                  If it weren't for KDE Plasma to be so beloved and big and their developers to stand their ground against Nvidia's bullshit, there wouldn't be any GBM and Wayland support even today.
                  Congratulations to KDE developers for standing their ground against shitty behavior of Russia (Nvidia) when others bent over!
                  Now it would be nice if Nvidia would work on bringing HDR support for their users, it seems that AMD doesn't care too much about that.

                    Your first mistake was installing Linux on it. Other than that NVIDIA works just fine.

                    Your second mistake was buying a laptop with a discrete GPU - they all suck even under Windows.

                    Your third mistake was trying to look smug however it came off cheap and lame.
