      Didn't you say "KDE Neon Developer OS Switches To Plasma Wayland By Default" 9 months ago?

          Unlikely. https://plus.google.com/+MartinGräßl...ts/4UysVWKNWBy (see comments)

          Plasma isn't quite ready on the open-source driver stack without the devs worrying about Nvidia's proprietary gubbins just yet anyway...

              What more news do you need? The devs said they lack both the resources and the desire to maintain separate code paths and that's that.

                KDE Neon is a nice distribution, combines Ubuntu LTS stable and well supported base with latest KDE, it is like having Kubuntu LTS with always latest KDE, anyone using KDE should consider trying it.

                  I wonder how the Gnome guys do this. I think they just try Wayland and if it fails they load Xorg, maybe..? They use for gdm too (when possible ofc).

                    Afaik it's done the usual GNOME way, devs set the default, and if it breaks it's up to the user to go and switch to xorg.
