Old, and most probably already seen.

To me Wayland, for those not using gnome/kde and are not into tiling compositors, things are not quite stable yet. I hope Xorg is here to stay for long.

  • Even with “built for Wayland” Tiling compositors, it’s still flakey. I had to abandon it most recently because I couldn’t get scaling to work properly with a status bar; font scaling was just fucked in general.

    I keep trying it every few months, but I have to go back to X after a week or so.

    X may be abandoned, but it’s stable, reliable, fast, and it works. Wayland has a way to go on all these fronts. For being a fresh, “clean” codebase, I’d expect it to be better in one of these areas.
