    When will the Nvidia proprietary driver provide 3D acceleration under wayland... I think this is more important

    Performance basically is untouched by xwayland.

    So just uninstall that buggy piece of shit Wayland then?

    Or are you a masochist?

    Understandable.

    But the issue is that you log into Wayland in the first place.

    If you just used X.Org from the very start you wouldn't have this dilemma.

    Hope it would help me running Warhammer 40K Dawn of War II. Right now I have to log in X.org session as if running on Wayland it leads strictly to total system freeze.

    In my experience, gaming has been relatively seamless thanks to XWayland. I suspect performance isn't maximized, but as I tend to target a 60Hz vsync rate that's not usually a concern. (As a tradeoff-bonus, if I ever want to record gameplay, the X-based games are still visible to OBS, for a price.)

    It's not only Fedora and Red Hat which use Wayland. People on Arch, Gentoo, openSUSE, Ubuntu, etc use it too.
    Everybody except Nvidia users which accounts for 81% marketshare.

    There's no reason that patch couldn't be backported to the 1.20 branch

    Great with some focus on improving XWayland. XWayland is probably the biggest single reason why Wayland is still not there where I want to use it. There is simply too many X apps that do not work smoothly on Wayland - especially with a HiDPI screen.
