GNOME 3.10
Being really bothered with the imperfections X.org display-server results in, I'm very psyched about the state of GNOME 3.10's Wayland support.

I do hope this will get graphiccards-vendors to start working on some EGL-support.

The core to it releases on Wayland today as welll. see this is what happen when you don't collaborate, Gnome will be fully working on Wayland, way before the so called "Mir Thing" and, "Unity Next" will be working on "Mir" and, if you look only a hand full of developers are working on Gnome.

Mutter Wayland 3.9.91 Released

P.S. The so called "Mir Thing" is a fully unneeded fragmentation and, a huge waste of time Thanks Mark for Stabbing Linux users in the back once more.

Why I hate Canonical.

Well, considering I switched from Gnome Shell to KDE some time ago, because the GS went downhill in my opinion, I don't know if I'll give it another try.
Then again, until Nvidia gives us EGL drivers, the Gnome Shell might be suiting my needs better. Besides that there's classic mode which I heard is nice.

You don't even need Classic Mode. Gnome also ships with official "Applications" and "Places" Extensions which can be turned on through gnome-tweak-tool. This pretty much gives you the Gnome 2 feel back. Together with DashtoDock and another extension that puts all icons into the systemtray instead of the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and permanently hidden notification area Gnome 3 is pretty much usable.
I once had the situation where the "places" extension wouldn't load on start up for no reason after 3 days or so it reappeared on its own. That's why I hate the concept of extensions. Use as few of them as possible.
I wonder if Gnome 3.10 Wayland compositor can also run on software rendering like weston does. Maybe this would allow the use of prop. NVIDIA for OpenGL and the CPU handels the desktop compositor.

I've yet to try GNOME in all its forms, but honestly - I've tried a few distros now, all different from windows - and all it takes for me to like most distros, is a matter of speed, stability, and how long it takes learning the logics behind the layout of the GUI. But most distros can be heavily modified.
With that in mind, I'm happy if GNOME 3.10 has the perfect frames that Wayland promises. I'll learn to live with everything else, until the greatest bugs are fixed - as long as it's functional, and somewhat stable.
