Re: [tlug] Why Wayland?

I am not sure about the actual benefits other than what I read - it is simpler, more direct, better performance, better security, etc, all of which are claims I have not been able to measure first hand.

One practical benefit has been that fonts on VSCode get crispier when I enabled wayland support for VSCode 😄  But then again my system was probably running vscode in some kind of compatibility mode until then to begin with so maybe not a fair comparison 😅
