        Wayland support has come a long way compared to less than one decade ago...”

        …that’s optimism for sure.

          Cool!
          I hope KDE developers can easily take it as an example to implement these improvements in Kwin.

            Haha... I forgot about Rebecca Black OS. I'm surprised it's still being updated.

                It's actually used quite a bit in the embedded world. That's AFAIK why it lacks desktop features such as xdg-activation but has good (probably the best) hardware plane support.

                  Reference implementations do not need to be used. They just prove that whatever the protocol says, can be done. Otherwise Wayland might mandate the compositor must read your mind or other rubbish like that. And while that is an exaggeration, it is all too easy to slip something into a spec that can't actually be done or is insanely complicated to implement. A reference implementation makes sure that's not the case. It's also a starting point for implementors.
