    As soon as I have the slightest excuse to run my daily tasks on Wayland, I'm going to find a way to make it work. I'm just way too excited to ditch X11, and I'm happy with all the planning and rigor involved in Wayland's development. They've covered so many bases and made the transition path so available to everyone- it's kind of too good to be true. Supporting X11 applications, mobile devices, and a plan for more efficient remote display are all good reasons to take Wayland seriously. I can't wait until a DE comes along to show people how ready it is.

    The first one will probably be E18, which is set to release next year as an incremental update. Check the Enlightenment site for a blog update on Wayland support, its already running. Not sure if its hit public git yet though. After that, KDE will come next after the move to Qt5 and they start to leverage QWayland. Gnome will happen whenever they get around to it, I'd imagine GTK is a little more X-specific in some areas since it was meant as the GPL-OS toolkit

    AFAIR GNOME 3.12 is planned to work halfway on Wayland, meaning: Shell is an Compositor, as Weston, and at least some applications can be compiled as native clients, the rest is launched transparently via XWayland. There is somewhere a roadmap in the gnome wiki.

    Wayland clients DO NOT:

    Minimize (not implemented in Wayland protocol)
    Fullscreen (un-fullscreening not implemented, so this was disabled to prevent complaining)
    Use EGL when rendering (wait a couple days)

    Since 1.2 doesn't include miniimize i assume that WL with E will be fully functional at the next (1.3) release. We still lack a proper browser though.

    - While mentioned previously, with future Wayland releases they will never break the protocol or client-side API. For now the wayland-server API isn't for sure stable but that's less of an impact.
    Or you could do the api so the first thing it asks is a version of the protocol.
    And then how to agree on what version to use.

    Then you can break it without causing insurmountable problems.
