    As the XWayland behavior is the same as xorg in macosx and windows I suppose the behavior already is supported by xorg and has been optimized in many years?

    This is a big milestone as I understand. I'm extremely pleased with the pace of development of Wayland & GNOME this year.

    Code:
                  wow
                         gnome
                                       wow
           such alignment
                         ready for production
                  such obscure issue
                                       nobody will ever see
                  wow
    I shouldn't stay up so late.

    tl; dr:
    You can have X running while trying it on a tty with "gnome-session --session=gnome-wayland". tty switching doesn't work, but you can "pkill gnome-session" and it'll drop you back to the tty. But when doing that it also killed pulseaudio and kded4 in X was a bit broken and hotkeys still don't work even after starting kdeinit4 again.
