Something will not come back and anyway, years will pass before the wayland will be used by many distributions, if this happens!
    I say Carstairs, by jove it's one of those horseless carriage contraptions. They'll never catch on, can't beat a good strong horse you know.

    Wayland is progression, but Gnome isn't. At least, not in the current state with huge memory leaks, performance problems and the lack of common sense in few places.

    The only thing I need to switch to Plasma on Wayland is modesetting.

    Good. That's what works for you.

    I'd sooner stay on X11 than use GNOME... and that's also fine.

    Right now Im on wayland kde on latest Qt and plasma, and it works great most of the time. But there are some bugs left that hopefully will be fixed on Qt 5.10 at the end of the year.

    It was clear that KDe has problem to implement wayland. Too long time has passed since the operation started. Kde has been overcame by GNOME/Fedora and next time from Ubuntu/GNOME (that would explain the reason why Ubuntu prefers gnome to KDe). Probably KDe structure has some kind of compatibility issue the developers are not able to fix and as far as me they won't be able to fix ever. I'll wait for the next releases then I'll change to GNOME/Ubuntu.
