A few weeks ago we reported the Fedora Workstation distribution will soon switch to GNOME on Wayland as the project's default desktop environment. Wayland is designed to replace the classic X display software which is currently used by most Linux distributions and other Unix-like operating systems. Fedora is not the only project adopting Wayland. The KDE neon project, which combines a stable base built on Ubuntu with cutting edge KDE packages, has announced it will be switching to Wayland too. "During this year’s Akademy we had a few discussions about Wayland, and the Plasma and Neon team decided to switch Neon developer unstable edition to Wayland by default soonish. There are still a few things in the stack which need to be shaken out - we need a newer Xwayland in Neon, we want to wait for Plasma 5.8 to be released, we need to get the latest QtWayland 5.7 build, etc."
