    Plasma X11, I've reported the bugs and I've been on IRC and the mailing lists a lot. I keep trying Plasma Wayland, it just isn't baked yet - I should really start filing bugs but there's so many glaring issues it really still feels like a technical preview.

Also Vulkan apps don't launch under the Intel DDX

    The XWayland improvements sounds quite important and I'm happy that they finally will release X.org 1.20. Especially because of XWayland I would have wished that they release more frequent, this stack is getting more and more important and even small improvements make a big difference.

GNOME on Wayland does not work well on high refresh rates and xwayland apps are locked to 60fps.

    TLDR
    High refresh rate display? Use GNOME on x.org and avoid GNOME on Wayland or Unity.
    Yeah I used to have to use xrandr -r 120 to set my display to 120Hz for Unity/compiz to be smooth on my Radeons pre-18.04. Now though, 18.04 is the first time where it works at 144Hz out of the box, no PPAs, no tweaking, just buttery smooth. Gnome-Shell on x.org was better than Wayland for sure (the latter having terrible jitters), but still neither are good compared to Unity in 18.04 for me.

Super smooth, responsive, sensible window management. Such a shame they moved to gnome-shell, which seems to be a lot less fluid than Unity (I have a 144Hz screen, and it looks like gnome-shell doesn't move faster than 60?).

    gnome-shell or Mutter still doesn't use same window animation when moving windows with shortcut keys such as Ctrl+Alt+Right.
    gnome-shell or Mutter still places windows a bit weirdly, maybe its just modals?

    I would love to use Wayland, but I still use X.Org 1.19. Too bad X.Org 1.20 didn't arrive in time for Ubuntu 18.04.
