I don't think I would switch over either, there's not a significant enough difference to change and wayland is still green.

I wouldn't switch either; I was just looking for a window manager to run in wayland to see if i could actually accomplish anything.

Minimal.

Enlightenment runs on wayland so I was using that, and weston will be a decent wm when it's finished.

X-apps don't work to well, and I had issues with the mouse and/or keyboard locking up all the time.

There may be some reconfigurations I could have tried, but I didn't dig too deep into setting up wayland. I just wanted a preview.

I suspect waykand and Xorg will coexist for quite a while even after wayland is released for production.

I've seen other comments lately with locking issues too, but interesting to see where they are at and a feel for how things work. :)
