    Phoronix: Wayland's Wild Decade From v1.0 Release To Usable GNOME/KDE Desktop Support

    The 2010s saw the release of Wayland 1.0, Ubuntu's Mir initially being a "competitor" to now embracing Wayland, desktop environments like GNOME and KDE now having good support for it as an alternative to X11, and other functionality continues to be added to Wayland compositors and its standard protocols...

        I think I missed that day when KDE became usable with wayland session. A week ago it was still unusable.

          *For some value of usable.

          Not very usable for much of anything outside of a fairly narrow range of hardware and software combinations.

            Well, if you have an AMD GPU(at least i can certify TAHITI, Cape Verde and ELLESMERE) and Gnome 3.30+(3.34 is best tho) wayland work very very well almost perfect i would dare to say.

            Caveat: this is on ArchLinux but i can assume this will be very hit or miss on cycle distros since those tend to have old LLVM/mesa releases compared to upstream hence i'm not sure you get all the benefits right away

                jrch2k8 GNOME on Wayland is already default on enterprise. So yeah.. Next step is only loading Xwyland when needed. That’s GNOME 3.36 or more likely 3.38.
