    Bug zapping season is going to be good this time around with that greater focus.

      All the outcomes from this sound wonderful

      - More focus on bug fixing Wayland issues
      - More drive for NVidida to improve drivers (I've heard 555 beta has been big improvement)
      - Less waste on obsolete tech
      - More demand for Linux supported hardware (e.g. AMD/Intel)

      Then those that it doesn't work for still have plenty choice of different distro's, package archive, stay on 40, or more

        I'd say it'll be pretty boring

          Did they fix screen readers already? Because otherwise Fedora is loosing some users with that move, I assume.

            Makes sense for Fedora.

              I'll bet that by the time CentOS Stream 11/ RHEL 11 land, almost nobody will be using X11.

                What do you mean specifically?
                According to https://github.com/splondike/wayland...main/README.md things appear to work.

                Do you have a bug report?

                    "All of the GNOME X11 packages will remain available in the repositories but not be pre-installed anymore."

                    You still have time.
