    Out of the 6 things on the list, you bold the one thing that is controversial? Even completely ignoring the fact that Wayland support from NVidia driver is very fresh where as everything else on that list is Linux ecosystem issues that have literally existed for years.

    The only problem here is people pushing Wayland when its clearly not ready and in reality NVidia drivers is a tiny part of that problem.
    Yeah, it is clearly not ready.
    13 years are not enough to get this garbage stable ...

    Not surprising at all. Most of Valve games are crashing when the SDL_VIDEODRIVER=wayland is set. It looks like Valve devs don't care about it.

    Pathetic as ever.

    No, we just say fuck you NVIDIA and buy AMD instead, why does it upset you so much?

    I would rather have minor inconveniences than have a space-wasting, not so good looking SSD. CSD is the best!!!!

    CSD supporters probably don't think one may want to move / resize windows for hanged / busy applications. Or they don't think an application may be busy or hanged.

    Is it me or did everyone just ignored the mentioned bug in libwayland?

    On a different note, yes, I can attest to Nvidia driver being very buggy in Wayland, including basic issues such as xwayland window switching and sleep freezes. Expected given that support is new and KMS considered experimental.

    NVIDIA's Linux strategy has failed so spectacularly that it's causing collateral damage to the rest of the open-source ecosystem. I think NVIDIA really needs to cooperate with and support the Nouveau team, or get a fully-functional open-source Vulkan driver out there. We need something, they can still keep their proprietary driver for corporate support, GRID VDI, and other big money projects. I just want to be able to use their products in a reasonable way that doesn't make me jump through hoops or bend my system into some alternate universe.

    I bolded the first item in the list because it was the first item in the list.

    It is a well known fact though that Nvidia's driver has been a prime culprit in holding back Wayland.
    This is a fucking lie. Wayland is held back by its asinine design decisions and asinine implementations.

    Yeah, he strikes straight into the brains of Linux users who suddenly lose dozens of IQ points when they see the word NVIDIA.

    Mostly works? Webcam yes, screen share no. I guess you don't need that.
