Fedora 25 will run Wayland by default

Filing this on behalf of the Workstation WG. This feature was proposed for F24, and at the critical decision point, the Workstation WG elected to hold off for one more release to have Wayland more ready for being the default session. F24 was reverted to Xorg, and Rawhide stayed set with Wayland as default. However, the Change was not moved to F25 along with that decision, which was a process failure.

There are still some bugs that are important to solve. However, there is still time to work on them. And the legacy Xorg session option will not be removed, and will be clearly documented how to fallback in cases where users need it, such as a11y users. It is likely there will be additional bugs/issues to solve during F26 development and beyond, but it's unlikely we can get the level of exposure and testing desired without keeping Wayland as the default.

The WG would like FESCo to consider granting an exception that allows the WG to continue on with Wayland as the default, rather than reverting to Xorg as default for the F25 release.
Official Ticket...

Are any LQ members running Wayland yet?

I would love to run Wayland, but currently it isn't supported by the wacom (Intuos / Pro) tablet drivers.

Despite having Gnome on Wayland (and, at one point) KDE on Wayland options at login neither will open on either of my Debian Sid machines (Laptop with Intel and Desktop with NVIDIA graphics). A while ago Gnome on Wayland would open on the laptop but was a little buggy so I didn't try again for a while.

I almost started a thread this very day regarding it but I'll hold off not to see whether anybody is running Wayland successfully.
