Soon, Windows users will be laughing at us for the stupid forced reboots...
Instead, we are regressing: as #GNOME is switching to #Wayland, it's no longer possible to restart gnome-shell without losing the entire session. In #KDE, it's no longer possible to update kwin_wayland without restarting the session.
Both these these components are much more complex than the X server, and thus more prone to crashing. This is a serious architectural limitation for Wayland and I don't know what could be done about it.
