Fedora 25 To Run Wayland By Default Instead Of X.Org Server

An anonymous reader writes: Fedora 25 will finally be the first release for this Linux distribution — and the first tier-one desktop Linux OS at large — that is going ahead and using Wayland by default. Wayland has been talked about for years as a replacement to the xorg-server and finally with the upcoming Fedora 25 release this is expected to become a reality. The X.Org Server will still be present on Fedora systems for those running into driver problems or other common issues.

Fedora’s steering committee agreed to the change provided the release notes “are clear about how to switch back to X11 if needed.” In addition, according to the Fedora Project’s wiki, “The code will automatically fall back to Xorg in cases where Wayland is unavailable (like NVIDIA).”
