      Are you aware that Wine is open source? It means you can implement it as soon as you want to.

          It is currently possible with this branch, https://github.com/varmd/wine-wayland. Though it is limited to Vulkan (including DXVK).

            Experimental Wayland support is already there. Not ready for actual daily use yet, but it's coming.

              Yesterday Fedora updated it's distribution of wine (staging) in the official repo from 5.10 to 5.12 and it completely broke for me. Nothing runs anymore. Anyone else having the same problem?

              For now I'm resorting to running any windows programs on proton or Lutris' wine distributions. Glad to have many alternatives nowadays.

                Deja vu. Good one, a classic.

                I pulled it down but haven't really used it. They had problems with .11 which is why that wasn't made available so maybe they missed something or maybe wine has a regression for you.

                  How many years until NVIDIA have wayland support? hmmm, majority of gamers still use NVIDIA cards, even under Linux.
                  If we want a full shift to wayland, then support for the hardware needs to happen. (I'm aware nvidia is to blame here)

                    Ten years is how long until it works for the average GNU/Linux user. Add another 15 years for working with wine.
