    Well, some AMD devs usually popup in the AMD related topics, but here the discussion's title is about Kwin, so probably none of them have read your question.

    Anyway I agree with Awesomeness about the readiness for Wayland. The new AMD architecture is waiting for inclusion, see here, and Intel just works, as well as nouveau.
    So, yeah, only the nvidia binary remains out here.

    No, not we are two years away, YOU are. It's you damn own fault for buying NVidia. Intel's and AMD's Mesa drivers work just fine under Wayland right now. Just two mouse clicks in GDM and I can run a Gnome Wayland session this very moment.

    The desktop Working on Wayland, working well on Wayland, and all your main media apps working well on Wayland are 3 different things.
    Not quite, we're less than a year away in my estimation. GNOME Shell and Plasma should be working well on Wayland by the end of the year. The important gnome apps have been written to GTK3 by this point, and the remaining important KDE apps should have been ported to KF5 by the end of the year, which means that the important desktop application will run on wayland. SDL already supports wayland, so the games that use it should. Chromium already supports wayland and the other stragglers should fall in line soon enough. That said XWayland should provide an adequate experience as they transition.

    As far as Nvidia goes, they're only going to hold it back for Nvidia users, and more than likely they'll put in support when Fedora moves to Wayland wholesale.
