So Phoronix reported that we’ve not planning on trying for Wayland by default for 20.04 LTS.
I haven’t been able to find another public discussion on it. Is this the case?
If it hasn’t been decided yet, I’d like to share a few reasons why we should aim for defaulting to Wayland for 20.04 LTS:
- There is work being done to close those last little itches keeping people off it
- And some big things like the nVidia driver working correctly and screensharing appear imminent (within months?)
- As the distro with the most users, I think it’s reasonable to assume that third party apps and the nvidia driver will be made Wayland-ready sooner - if we push harder for wayland (and pipewire)
- Snaps security story isn’t complete without it
