    Gnome with Wayland is *not* dropped, it just doesn't look like it will be the default. You are very welcome to choose it from GDM as session and report any problems you see in bug trackers

    F24 Alpha Go/No-Go meeting
    Are they deciding whether to include AlphaGo in Fedora or what?

    I just had to. AlphaGo has been in the news lately and AlphaGo or no go meeting sounded funny.

    People don't bother to look, then assume someone is hiding something.

    The nightlies are produced and made available every day.

    Wayland 1.10 just didnt support enough stuff to be made default . Wayland 1.11 in F25 should have most support they need in it to make it Default. but some people forget, Wayland is just a Graphics Stack.

    So where is this myth that Ubuntu is nowadays still significantly the most user-friendly distro coming from? Apart from some notable multimedia packages missing from the official Fedora repositories due to their stricter licensing policy... (which can be overcome with RPMFusion quite easily) what's the difference? For me, Fedora just works (as well as or better than Ubuntu).

    Also not as fast as Arch (rpm-dnf-slow vs pacman) and not as stable either: I've never had so many things broken due upgrade in Arch as when I did Fedora upgrade, and more, upgrading script broke itself :P
