      If they do that then people won't do the work to try and make it ready until the start of F27 or F28...

          i'd say 27 is more likely to be Wayland Default than 26

            I found Wayland on Fedora 24 pretty stable, I could run Firefox, GNOME Terminal, and other common stuff, and even Steam and Cities: Skyline without any problem.

            But the only one problem that seems completely outstanding to me is that the numlock state isn't remembered and is disabled by default every time you start a new session... I mean... Num-fucking-lock! Are we still in the 80's where not all the keyboards had this key?

              Num Lock NEVER worked properly on Linux for me. Starting without it is OK, I guess, but:
              - Every time you switch VT, its status change without updating the light
              - It seems to be reset in many places: if I boot with num-lock (BIOS), it gets disabled later, with the VT, and usually with the DM.
              - As stated previously, the light is updated sporadically: not on sleep resume, not on logkscreen, etc.

              So, basically, my concerns boil down to the num lock indicator on the keyboard. It can be updated by using Caps Lock, but this is impratical.

              Also, I wonder why isn't scroll lock used... at all, it seems. Not even an indicator light. I would like to see it used more, in the virtual terminals, for instance.

                Numlockx... Well, Fedora is a Wayland testbed more in buzz words then in a real full functionality. In Arch I hardly stick with pure Wayland with lack of smooth system-apps interoperability. I am a patient person wishing the best to the Wayland and apps developers.

                  I would like to see Weston support window positioning using hotkeys (such as WinKey+RightArrow), and edge resistance for easier window positioning.

                    Install enlightenment and i think it has both of them. Weston is not supposed to be a DE.
