    Unfortunately Wayland under Ubuntu 17.04-dev is less than stellar.

    Logging into Weston or GNOME from LightDM doesn't work.
    GNOME Terminal is outdated and still at 3.20 not, 3.22, it's buggy and have a messed up shadow.

    Firefox and Chromium either don't yet support Wayland or isn't built with it, so you have to run it through XWayland.

        I would not expect Ubuntu to improve it's support of Wayland (read: none) any time soon. If you want to see what Wayland is capable of, you are going to need to jump to another distro. Might I suggest Fedora.
