    For low end and midrange AMD is comparable or better. For high end you should be either on Windows (gaming) or not care about display at all (server).

    iGPU or Radeon HD5870
    So you need to compare to a 10 years old AMD card to say NVIDIA is better? Cool story bro.

    I've been using GNOME Wayland for the last year or so and it's fine with only one crash I can remember.

    Yeh, the thought of session instability potentially causing me to loose work is a frightening thought, but they've done a pretty good job of fixing the crashes.

    There, fixed it for you.

    There is simply no alternative to Nvidia for performance, feature set and efficiency. Whether you like it or not, this is the fact .Maybe your iGPU or your Radeon HD5870 is enough for your use case, but for most people there is no alternative to Nvidia hence until wayland supports it, it will remain a silly joke.

    Tried Manjaro + KDE on wayland (on nvidia, so wasn't expecting much). It actually worked really really well. I can't describe how much I've missed mixed DPI handling, it has always bothered me with X11 that I can't use a 1080 and 4k screen together with different scaling on each, but even that worked beautifully. The rendering itself seems 99% fine, there still are some very minor kinks and some software that needs updates, but really coming together now. I switched back to X11 for now, but that was mostly due to issues with vulkan under wayland.
    Just out of curiosity, what sort of issues do you see with Vulkan and Wayland?

    Well, if you are running a leading edge distro, the combination of wayland and nvidia does work, for at least some use cases, so that would mean your joke no longer remains.
