        GNOME had a year headstart compared to KDE due to the massive porting from Qt4 to Qt5 (and other refactoring issues). I believe that the next releases of Plasma and Kwin (5.8) are supposed to be feature complete for Wayland.

          This is good news, too bad I don't like to use gnome... but I just might give it a shot now.

            Redhat and Fedora have a lot of GNOME developers, so it would make sense that the push to Wayland as default would drive this to be completed faster. I'm sure Rex Dieter (Fedora) will really push KDE to work well for Fedora 26, or at least try, as he has a history of being a Fedora+KDE advocate and is a prominent Fedora developer.

              Except UI, performance, comfort of use, available applications, customization ability, portability (I don't care about this one except mobiles) and so on. KDE owns gnome in most possible ways.

                Please stop this trolling. Subjective opinions are not fact, and it is very tiresome to read the same shit over and over in the forum, everytime some GNOME news pop up. If you don't like GNOME/KDE/whatever, why post shit about it?? Just ignore the news and move on. GNU/Linux is about choice.

                As a satisfied GNOME user and using a stylus over 50% of the time, I think this is exciting news. Hopefully some GNOME devs will add resizing tablet area to the Settings panel, for users uncomfortable with 'xsetwacom'.

                  They did have a head start, but not for that reason. GNOME underwent the same massive refactoring for GNOME 3... one of the goals of which was to enable something like Wayland. The difference is simply that they started their transformation *much* earlier than KDE did... they've been working on this for a very long time.

                    Wake me when Huion tablets are properly supported in GTK/GNOME. Right now, they are broken. MyPaint blames GDK and with personal experience the Huion 610 Pro works in all aspects of Krita and Mypaint but not the freehand pressure sensitive brushes.

                    Oddly, it works in GIMP.
