Re: [tlug] Why Wayland?

I can definitively say Japanese input does work fine with Wayland.   I has worked for me with both Guix and Ubuntu.

What is even more, X11 doesn't work properly for my AMD graphics card (I am sure one can find the correct configuration but I never bothered 😅)

On both freshly installed Guix and Ubuntu systems, whenever I tried X11 the white background became yellowish.

(Other than the obvious lack of Nvdia's Cuda chips... I like the fact AMD works right out of the box with proprietary firmware and driver bundled with Linux kernel, unlike Nvidia)
