    Even worse is when "but LTS" is tacked on.

    "But Nvidia" and "but LTS" are always recipes for disaster.
    You know how open source works. Get active yourself, or get what you're being given.

      Yep, it would be good to see a Vulkan backend happen but that will likely take some time.
      X's feature set does not seem to the problem. Sure, many people think remote access is overrated these days. But at the same time people scramble to use whatever proprietary tools will let them share their screen in a teleconference (of course, X will not help you when other parties are on Windows, but that's another story).
      I was talking, for example, about how long it took Wayland to offer screen capture ability. Because, by design, that was deemed a security issue.

        Same can be said of Nvidia not giving enough so the free Nvidia drivers just work. Outside of terrorism, no amount of me being active will fix Nvidia not releasing enough blobs for various open source developers to make an NVGPU driver to remove the "But Nvidia" from the equation.

          Nvidia is doing fine. They contribute a lot. For some it's never enough.

            Remote access remains crucial at least for some use cases but X does not come with high-performance tools that just work either.

            Sure, screen capture took a moment and many tools still don't have it implemented. I'd argue that it is worth to isolate windows such that a browser (or any other tool) cannot read my root terminal windows but I get the frustration with that.
