    I think the problem for many projects is that wayland is not a thing but an implementation by every single project.
    every x11 window manager was its own implementation, nothing changed

    what makes you think x11 software was 100% compatible with each other?

      actually most games and gamers are on android

      novideo shit doesn't support linux, don't give them your money. btw, what smart things can you say about google stadia regarding novideo and linux?

        no, they used to say the opposite thing about ubuntu and mir. mir was ubuntu going its own way, wayland is ubuntu returning back into family

            you mean like 99% of time used software?

            sdl supports wayland, gtk supports wayland, wine has out-of-tree support, what else you are missing?

              you wrote/quoted wall of irrelevant text. consider for a moment that average app today is chromium wrapper and chromium does support wayland

                they are developing wayland(surprise, you are the last one barking at x11 tree)

                  More than a few months I would say. I've used it daily for a year and a half and I have had no such issues. There are glitches, but nothing of the sort you're describing.

                    wayland session is default in fedora for many years

                      i'm planning to build new pc towards year end with new hardware releases. and to stay on amd/amd
