    Phoronix: Experimental Linux Live OS For Showcasing Wayland Updated With Latest Desktops

    Years ago long before GNOME had great Wayland support and was used by default on the likes of Fedora Workstation and long before other Wayland compositors had mature support along with other areas of the stack, there was a Linux distribution offering up an experimental Linux "Live DVD/USB" OS for showcasing Wayland. That distribution is now out with a new release...

      Wow, I remember trying it a few years ago and I was quite impressed that it worked without any problems or glitches unlike KDE Plasma, but maybe because it was so simple.
      I remember also that I could rotate windows very easily, i don't know what this would be useful for, but anyway.
      I wish that KDE would hire this developer, if he's available, to help them further improve Wayland support, to get it more on par with Gnome.

                long before GNOME had great Wayland support and was used by default on the likes of Fedora Workstation
                Over 200 "new" bug reports on bugzilla, with the oldest being August 2019, and most seem to have been reported within the past 3 months. Maybe it's great support, I don't know. Maybe "in progress" would be a more apt description. And when you say "the likes of Fedora Workstation" - which others are using it as the default? I see Debian's Gnome spin, and that's it, maybe I'm missing something. Ubuntu tried a few years ago and failed, so they got their community test distribution - whoops I mean Debian - to be the test guinea pig.

                Big thumbs up to the return of Hannah Montana Linux. It's a party in the USA.
