Overall the (X)Wayland-based experience was great on Ubuntu 21.10 for both KDE Plasma and GNOME Shell. The only problems encountered with (X)Wayland on this new Ubuntu Linux release were when running KDE Plasma with the games HITMAN 2 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider while for all other games it was running and running well. It's quite a good experience as we head into the Ubuntu 22.04 LTS cycle. Similar NVIDIA Linux driver tests will come once the 495 driver series is deemed stable.
