    Michael any news on this? Gnome 3.36 is out, but this "X on demand" feature is still experimental. I haven't heard anything about it.

    I've been testing Gnome on Wayland recently, using Ubuntu 19.04 as a base, and the mouse performance is just terrible, super laggy all the time. Does anyone else see that issue?

    uid313 That is very likely to happen on Fedora within a couple of releases. Pay attention to the proposed system wide changes. I guess FESCO would need to discuss it. And they would most likely just wipe x from the default installation and keep it in the repo.
    Muffin still doesn't support Wayland and it looks like the Mint devs don't have the resources to change that, so at least the Cinnamon Spin will further depend on X.

    Mr. Jensen Huang asked me to tell you that sane people is supposed to buy hardware that support software they would like to use. Not the other way around.

    I'd consider the fact GDM can after this be started in Wayland without XWayland running a major win for security.

    uid313 Depends. If you don’t need Xwayland it won’t load.
    Yes, I know, that's what the article said. But I want Xwayland to not be installed on the system.

    I don't know if it is possible to compile mutter and others without x
    But I sow something in code review

    Very cool. I'd also like to see, for some reasonable subset of X11, a library that can replace XLib and run entirely in-process, rather than as an actual server.
