kragen, what's the current status of BubbleOS?
Also, I'm curious what you think of Arcan (https://arcan-fe.com)
Wayland blows ass and mostly functions as a launcher for x.org processes. Nobody needs, wants or asked for Wayland. It's nobody's fault but the assholes at FreeDesktop

Is Wayland really the best solution

LOL. Not. Meanwhile, one dude managed to write an entire display server that handles, both, Wayland and X11 apps: https://arcan-fe.com/
SDL Tries Again To Prefer Wayland Over X11
2 projects | reddit.com/r/linux_gaming | 29 Nov 2022
Arcan is a decent contender for an actual way forward (and like PipeWire replacing PulseAudio, Arcan natively supports X11 and Wayland clients)
i suspect that when Wayland will gained popularity: people will be replaced MPV (the only application that refused to implement window management) by another good video player application..

How about Arcan? 
It seems very well reasoned, has stable API, excellent backwards compatibility and does not require GPU and i5 as this one might? Its author also has proven record and actual experience, which I'm not sure authors hpf TFA have, judging solely from their writing.
Writing a Wayland compositor is MUCH harder than it should be
8 projects | reddit.com/r/linux | 24 Aug 2022
Something like Arcan is already much more promising than Wayland. Using its segment implementation the compositor is able to dynamically simulate anything inbetween the Wayland and Xorg extremes of mechanism vs policy.
Interesting opinions on the shortcomings of Wayland

I think Arcan also tries to handle this reasonably but I don't remember the specifics.
