    All of those features work on at least Enlightenment and LiquidShell, both of which I mentioned. (LiquidShell is based on KDE.)
    Enlightenment Wayland session is highly experimental and is not available in Fedora yet.

    LiquidShell is experimental and it's still KDE from what I see.

    I need something tested and proven.

    XFCE maybe. IceWM/JWM.

    What about a graphical WM/DE independent clipboard manager?

      I don't know if I'd call it plenty, but damn near every single multi-GPU benchmark done on Phoronix it seems like there are 1 or 2 games that don't work on AMD for whatever reason. As someone who has used AMD GPUs for the past decade, that's been my experience, too. Occasionally 1 or 2 games will just stop working until something is fixed. Something can be anything from the kernel to Mesa to Proton to DXVK to Steam preload cache to ???.

      You'll be playing a game, go to bed, start the game up the next day, and it'll just not launch or run.

      I'm saying "games" up there, but I really mean "Steam games". They just up and quit working for a few hours to a day. It's damn annoying. I've never actually had these problems outside of Steam/Proton that didn't involve me doing source-built DXVK and Proton updates using 1337 optimizations.
      Sorry, but this happens on nvidia too. Other day Mechwarrior 5 would simple refuse to load for a day on my Nvidia GTX 1650M TI. Next day started working again, so no AMD exclusive defect

          No, it is not. In fact, they were one of the first to offer a Wayland session.

          LiquidShell is not experimental as it's based on KDE. And no, it's not KDE, it's an alternative to KDE based on KDE. Kinda like how a Mazda CX-3 is an alternative to their smaller cars and is based on the Mazda 2 internally, but it's a different form factor.

          I've tried Xfce a couple of times throughout the years on various distros and there were always some things that weren't fully working or the panel would crash. Maybe it's improved now with the GTK 3 port, but to call it stable… well, in my opinion it is not stable. Not experimental by a long shot, but not as rock solid as you make it out to be.

          There are a few, which one do you like best?

            That's par for the course
            But your count is a bit off, my comment was about the developer that contributed this change (not a helpful comment, just in a different category).

              avis wants to pretend Xorg is maintenance free and everyone including Red Hat developers are lying when they say otherwise. You think he is going to believe you? He will ask you for links, then dismiss them and ask for git commits and probably call them fake as well. He is a Xorg truther.

                Of course, Nvidia has bugs and compatibility issues just like any other graphics hardware. Only simps will defend Nvidia and deny that.

                  Well! It doesn't depend on Linux whether to support Nvidia, it's Nvidia that has to support Linux since they use a proprietary driver Linux can't do almost anything about it.
