    So, you're never going to use it? Because Xorg will always be an option for the foreseeable future, and depending how you look at it, Xorg will always be "more complete" since it has features Wayland will never come with (that doesn't mean there won't be implementations for them).

    I don't care if that's the case - there are valid reasons to want/need X. I'm just saying that your criteria may never be met.

        It doesn't. It doesn't work at all for me because they don't have the manpower to support nvidia. Gnome: full of manpower. KDE: poor man's solution, they even lack developers for proper development.

        Ha! Take that!

          You didn't understand my post. Read carefully, including the previous posts.

            KDE Plasma is amazing,but I have a few questions...
            1. Where is the virtual keyboard on lock screen that they've announced on previous releases?
            Did they forgot to add it and just braged about it?
            I have a key missing on my laptop's keyboard and it's impossible for me to enter a password that have this key's character.

            2. Where is the display of the creation date of files (like in Dolphin file properties), assuming that someone is using a Kernel >= 4.11 that has the statx function. is it available or not in this release?

              You need qt5-virtualkeyboard (note: SDDM isn't the lockscreen).

                That may well end up being the case, but it's not that I'm biased. It's just that xorg works for me and I'm pleased with it.

                  Once this lands in Arch I look forward to seeing just how much of that last 10% was made up.
                  Pretty much my experience. Except that it won't boot anymore for me, even on X, since yesterday. Anyway, I am enjoying the experience provided by LxQt + kwin at the moment

                    I don't get what's different about the Kickoff settings in 5.12? 'Cause I'm running Plasma 5.11 on Solus and I can already rearrange the tabs.

                      In fact, KDE doesn't even support Intel on Wayland 'cause I can't launch a KDE Wayland session at all whereas GNOME Shell works fine on Wayland with this same Intel card.
