I regret purchasing Nvidia, i run linux for day to day usage. X frequently has issues even with compositor at times. My intel-only laptop is buttery smooth with sway, while i am forced to use X just because of nvidia not supporting wayland properly.

Point is if you are Nvidia and user of open source software stay away from nvidia products

Yes, the NVidia Wayland situation is bizzare, with them forcing EGLStreams down on people when nobody wants to use them etc.

I can confirm that besides Intel, AMD plays nicely with Wayland too, am typing this from a Wayland GNOME session using the open-source AMDGPU drivers.
