    GNOME 3.26 is in use
    think you meant gnome 3.24.

      Still no fractional HiDPI scaling in Gnome 3/Wayland, which is a major no-go when I considered it as a main system on my development laptop (xrandr upscaling trick is just too slow and ugly). Sticking with Ubuntu/Unity.

        How does Gnome work with binary NVIDIA drivers? Any feedbacks?

          Good release so far. I've been using it for about a week with few problems. Wayland still isn't ready for prime time.

          Running a GNOME on Wayland session makes my games perform very badly. Also, apps using XWayland don't respond to touch events on the title bar. A bug was filed in GNOME months ago but it doesn't appear that anyone is looking into it.

            It works better than the other desktops do. KDE supports fractional scaling, but it still has a lot of HiDPI bugs that are way more annoying, like the auto spell check red lines not appearing when you misspell a word.

            Also, Scaling to 200% works fine on my 13.3" screen at 3200x1800. The only apps that is horrendously broken is steam. You have to squint to read it, but other than that it works fine. Gtk+ 2 apps have small widgets, but otherwise work.

            It seems like Linux is behind Windows, but Windows actually just tries to fudge HiDPI by scaling apps that aren't compatible with it, which makes them look like somebody rubbed vaseline on your screen.
