    Phoronix: Ubuntu 21.04 Will Try To Use Wayland By Default

    Ubuntu is going to be trying to switch over to using Wayland by default for the current Ubuntu 21.04 cycle to allow sufficient time for widespread testing and evaluation ahead of next year's Ubuntu 22.04 LTS release...

      What about improving the Wireless by switching to Intel's IWD ?
      Or switching the user and its home directory to the new systemd's structure?
      I hope that Kubuntu wil try to follow suit a bit and ship with the Wayland package installed by default so we can quickly try Wayland session without the need to download anything.

          Wayland already works fantastically well on Intel and AMD GPUs. Nvidia users will have to wait slightly (a lot) more.

            Wireless switching is working well for me. (Did you set AP priorities?)

                Nahh.. it's pointless if you have Ubuntu on ZFS.

                    That has nothing to do with the filesystem. But using a propritary filesystem on Linux is big brain time anyways, so what did I expect.
