This is a big milestone as I understand. I'm extremely pleased with the pace of development of Wayland & GNOME this year.
I shouldn't stay up so late.Code:wow gnome wow such alignment ready for production such obscure issue nobody will ever see wow
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.
