    Chrome's Ozone/Aura port works just great. Firefox needs quite a bit more work before it can run on non-X11 GTK platforms.

    Then multimedia players, VLC is in dark, audacious is moving to qt, Gnome music should work but i didn't tried this player, rhythmbox and all rest doesn't work.
    VLC has a very basic port committed, and GNOME Videos works just fine.

    For video players, MPV works under Wayland. I assume Gnome Video does/will soon. VLC probably not for a year or two

    KDM is being tossed out the window eventually.
    SDDM (KDM's replacement on Fedora and maybe on others) is Qt5-based, so depending on how its coded it could be wayland-native.
    SDDM is at its 0.9 version, but it's not ready yet for loading a wayland session.
    However, there is a "Wayland port" PR marked as 1.0 milestones.

    GDM switches to tty2 when using Wayland session.

    The problem is the big/popular apps. Libreoffice firefox thunderbird etc. for all the rest (multimedia, pdf, terminals) there are apps that work.

    Should I want to run a pure wayland environment, what apps are ready to do so in the fields of internet browsing, multimedia, office suites, pdf, etc?
    Many apps just use the graphic libraries but a whole bunch make use of X.

    Could we compile a list of the apps we can use as of now with gtk and qt wayland-compatible without using xwayland?

    Agree. I am mostly using Internet browser, music and video player, transmission and sometimes GPartEd.
    This are just basic apps and only transmission works perfectly(thanks to GTK3 backend), and that's it.
    Chromium, firefox are obviously not working, Midori should work but i have problem with keyboard input under Arch Linux.
    Then multimedia players, VLC is in dark, audacious is moving to qt, Gnome music should work but i didn't tried this player, rhythmbox and all rest doesn't work.
    What i don't like is attitude. people in last months are interested with Wayland earlier there was something like this- "Xorg works, why should i care about Wayland" and i am asking you-what in Xorg works? We've got only tearing and other glitches.
    But there are dark sides, everything is going slow because there is not so much devs.

    Great news! Every incremental release brings us more goodness!

    So, isn't it time for you to setup your own Gnome 3.14 with Wayland 1.6, and test it out?
