Wayland or X11

Latest response

Hello there. What works better in RHEL 8 - Wayland or X11?


Hi Nikos,

Better is not the question ... both work fine. Depends on the hardware you have and generally on your needs.
If you are having a NVIDIA graphics adapter and need full performance, which unfortunately you can achieve
only when the proprietary NVIDIA drivers are installed, then you better choose a Xorg session - For anything
else, you may want to use the modern Wayland ... I'm running it by default and I have to say it works greatly. :)


Thanks, Christian.

You're welcome, Nikos ! :)
