Oh please, how does not using Wayland by default have any effect on you? If you like Wayland, then logout, click the cog, choose Ubuntu with Wayland and log back in. One tip: when stuff doesn’t work on Ubuntu with Wayland; try it first on regular Ubuntu because 80% chance it’s a Wayland issue. I frequently use Wayland to test stuff out and I always find bugs. Those bugs are the reason Ubuntu doesn’t use Wayland. I try to fix as much as I can for my own apps, but some stuff simply does not work on Wayland, no matter how hard you try.
Ubuntu actually used Wayland by default years ago, and it didn’t work well so they decided Wayland wasn’t ready. In the meantime, Canonical is working on two Wayland compositors, one of them almost completely built by Canonical. Additionally Ubuntu makes it super easy to try Wayland out.
But you said it; “Reddit”. A site that feeds on negativity. When Ubuntu was using Unity, reddit gave Unity tons of criticism. Now that Ubuntu is on Gnome, reddit gives Gnome tons of criticism. You can be sure that once Ubuntu switches to Wayland, reddit will suddenly hate Wayland. Not because the public mindset actually changed. Simply because reddit encourages unconstructive criticism. The people who like something simply go to other places and/or shut up.
And the blatant lie that Ubuntu somehow enforces snap. If Ubuntu was enforcing snap, it would be doing a really bad job at it, because I have at least a dozen applications I installed myself which are not snaps. I had to jump through zero hoops in order to install those. The fine Yaru developers even publish the Ubuntu Yaru theme on Flathub so that when an Ubuntu user installs a Flatpak, the app is themed correctly. - Flatpak, which is in the regular Ubuntu repositories, by the way, packaged by Ubuntu developers.
