    The upstream bug referred to is not really a gnome bug, it's an AMD bug, and if affects all wayland compositors, and it is an old bug. However, AMD has some patches which are reported to work.
    as for gnome bugs, 46.1 is not in 24.04 yet, but it will come. LTS users are supposed to migrate at the 24.04.1 release, gnome will be 46.3 by then. If you want a gnome 46 right now, it doesn't matter what distribution you choose.

    When you think about it, it all makes perfect sense.

    Red Hat has shown that it is a technology leader by deploying only Wayland and already KDE6.

    Canonical, on the other hand, allows you to sail comfortably in the waters of Long Term Support (X11, KDE5).
    And those who want newer stuff simply switch to Backports later.
    I also read a developer post in February that they are planning for KDE6 by 2024/12.
    It would make sense.
    Kubuntu 24.10 with KDE6 appears first. And then it wades into the waters of LTS Backports.


    The main thing is that there is something to choose from.

    Even the new OpenSuse Leap 15.6 has KDE5.
    And those who want a newer one, deploy Slowroll or Tumbleweed.​

    A experimental feature that on purpose not yet exposed in the UI by default plus some Ubuntu out of tree patches break. Gnome really full of buggy features lol.

    I enabled VRR after upgrading to Ubuntu 24.04 and have been using it for a few days. I tested Cyberpunk 2077 and Dying Light with the FPS display on my monitor enabled to see it in action. Works amazing so far, haven't had any issues with it on my 6700XT.

    Ubuntu regularly ships package versions not found in any debian release channel, including sid. It could've easily been in this release, they just wisely decided against it for an lts release.
    This is true for single packages or Canonical-based software, but such a big project like KDE 6 must be first well-defined in Debian.

    According to the Kubuntu developers this is the reason because 24.04 ships with KDE 5.27 LTS:
    "24.04 will almost certainly ship with Plasma 5.27 LTS for stability, as it is a LTS.

    Also a lot of the work to get Qt6 based frameworks/plasma hasn't even started in Debian yet, which is where some of the more fundamental work (source package naming and acceptance) really has to be done. We (Kubuntu) often package ahead of Debian in versions, but with this big a switch it is inadvisable and could cause technical problems/headaches."

    Dark mode doesn't work for Gnome apps, system can't detect correct graphic drivers, defaults to Wayland even I explicitly select X.org on gdm, and etc. 23.10 was more stable than this.

    Look's like NVIDIA crap (= issues only related to NVIDIA hardware).

    Did they? Last time they talked about it, they said they're thinking about ending LTS releases, but they still haven't decided anything. Also, Plasma 5.27 actually is an LTS release and at least Kubuntu uses Plasma LTS releases in 18.04 LTS, 20.04 LTS. 22.04 LTS and 24.04 LTS. But if it's the only distro that takes advantage of Plasma LTS releases, it's understandable why they want to end them.
    openSUSE Leap and the latest Debian release also uses Plasma LTS releases. But sadly, Debian does not make any advantage of the LTS, because it does not update the minor updates (unlike Gnome minor updates, which are getting released in Debian stable releases)

    Are you saying that KDE is less broken than GNOME??? 🤣

    Even KDE 5 was buggier, uglier and less usable than current GNOME.

    Oh please, don't tell me dark mode broke for Wayland as well. In 23.10 dark mode only works in Wayland. Very frustrating bug.
    23.10 here, Dark Mode in GNOME works flawless in both Wayland and the Xorg sessions.
