    Default Weston

    Can Weston minimize windows yet?
    Was the window switcher merged?

    Too bad Wayland doesn't run on Nouvoue, at least not for me on my GeForce 8600.

    "minimize" is being worked on.
    It doesn't run on my GeForce 560 Ti either. Nouveau is the worst one of the 3 big open source drivers for Wayland.

    Because the drivers are buggy and not feature-complete.

    If you run Weston on X then it works.
    But if you run Weston on console/DRM then it crashes with garbled screen and you have to restart the computer.

    I think it's because nouveau is less stable and feature complete (cause they don't have access to docs like Intel & AMD have).
    As the nouveau devs said - they don't really care about making their driver stable in time for a given mesa release, for them it's a constant work in progress: if it works for your card - lucky you, if not - whatever, just wait or file a bug.
    Otherwise Nouveau is fit for Wayland.
