      System no, running apps, sure.

      Well sounds like your brain is kinda getting long in the tooth too, might be older than Xorg if you are old enough.

        On my laptop, I can't use Wayland because it is HiDPI and Fedora logs in using only 1/3 of available screen. The rest is all black. Animations are buggy and screen switcher does not show up (KDE). I'd use Wayland mostly because Laptop's touch screen sucks on X.

        On my desktop, I could use Wayland but I have and need Nvidia drivers, so.. no Wayland for me.

        Last and foremost, I don't need Wayland at all. Everything is working fine on my end.

          What is the hardware specification? I am running updated Fedora 29 Workstation on HP Envy x360 Ryzen 2500u with very little impact on performance and type on Firefox on Wayland with forced hardware acceleration enabled.

            My browser tab (Firefox on X11) crashed when I opened this page, I'm not kidding! It does not crash often at all!

              Gnome-shell under wayland, keeps crashing here and there in f29...

              It's time i guess, after 10 years, to swallow their pride, and develop something new. I mean soon, it will start considered an old protocol...
              We already have something new that has feature parity with X, it's called Arcan.

                  surely there are stupid people, but this is not limited to fedora devs, phoronix commenters are affected too. especially ones suggesting global breakage
