I did not find much info on this topic, so decided to post this topic.
Ubuntu 21.04 pushes Wayland: Yeey!
“But why is my system still X11? It should be default, right?”
The shortest explanation: Nvidia
This are the info that I gathered:
- Nvidia has less resources invested on their Linux driver team
- Nvidia does not publish (parts of) their drivers for the Linux kernel
- Nvidia lacks behind the Linux development curve
Now my questions:
- Can I run Wayland with the Nouveau driver?
- How can I switch from X11 to Wayland (when Nvidia catches up)?
If I have any incorrect info, let me know
