Though it should be noted more clearly that the fractional scaling support is only for Wayland. We'll still be shipping X11 as the default option for quite some time, especially for NVIDIA systems. If you only have Intel/AMD graphics, you can try out Wayland, but expect bugs for some drivers and applications.

If nothing else, at least GNOME is consistent. Making changes for the desktop that most distros aren't utilizing yet, which encourages them to comply or get left behind seems to be their M.O. My anticipation for this one change was massive! Something other than 100 or 200% has been necessary for years. I'll just go and mope a bit now... And wait for Wayland to come to Pop. ;)

Wayland's there for Pop. The main issue is that NVIDIA refuses to support the API which all vendors are supporting. Although there's been some work to get GNOME Wayland running on NVIDIA's proprietary API, so with some luck you may be using Wayland with the proprietary drivers soon.

It's all good and, I thought as much. You guys are on the ball keeping Pop up to date with tech. I'm actually glad you don't release anything before it has been thoroughly tested. I remember being so frustrated by Fedora's implementation that I swapped to MATE for a while.
So that brings me to another question. What happens with dual chipset computers in regard to Wayland working with Intel but not NVIDIA?

Wayland is still quite buggy. I plug in external monitors a lot with my laptop after booting and it crashes pop os every time I try to connect to a monitor. X11 doesn't have this issue. But x11 cant handle monitors with different resolution and screen size.
