Everything I’ve tried goes amock with wayland eg kdenlive eg nomachine eg tiggervnc.
From a group that I imagine has realistic opinions are there any pros to wayland? I see the cons as [it’s newer than xorg] [very anti sharing desktop] (since most of my machines are headless that is a biggie) [colour spaces]

I seek not turf wars, so if you are ardently pro your opinion is probably sus. Anybody?
