Depends. If Wayland can offer all features that X11 offers at
the moment, there will probably be no major problem in transition.
Being able to utilize 3D support and all the driver confusion
is definitely a point to work on.

No idea what I'm "obviously" doing wrong for decades...
I'm using FreeBSD as a very reliable (!), convenient,
modern, pleasant, do-not-interfere-with-my-intentions
kind of desktop for probably 20 years, for regular
desktop use, development, gaming, media, everything.
Personally, I'm not missing _anything_ that's important
to me; on the other side, Linux desktops do not offer
this kind of reliability yet. ;-)
