    It turns out mediocre nvidia driver is still POS and software like Steam were not updated to Wayland, yet. You could at least read the article.

    Matches what Ubuntu did yesterday for gdm3 for the 22.04 LTS release...

    "gdm3 (42.0-1ubuntu6) jammy; urgency=medium

    * Fix Wayland no longer being available for everyone
    - Fix by adding a separate revert patch instead of trying to
    rebase the cherry-picked patches (LP: #1969243)
    * Please note that Wayland is not currently available for
    systems using the Nvidia graphics drivers because those drivers
    don't properly handle suspend and resuming from suspend. It is
    intended for those drivers to be fixed in a future stable release
    update for Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. See bug 1968929"

    So until apparently until at least 22.04.01 Wayland won't be offered under the Nvidia drivers on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.

    Sigh.

    The very first thing that was named. Nvidia still holding back Wayland adoption.

    Could we get some flooding of Nvidia's bug report forum so they finally do something? It's so annoying. It's really so annoying.

    (I've been running Wayland for a while now, so please don't put me in the anti-Wayland group)

    Chromium switched to default with version 99. Works fine with it (could be a distribution preference though).

    Wayland is faster than x11 for me, and has plenty of neat features, Things like gpu hot plugging, heterogeneous monitor support works well. It also has great features like forced integer scaling, no proper tablet protocol support, great app fragmentation.

    yeah can't say i blame them.
