We don't have any supported Ubuntu version using Wayland by default, our 
motivations for sticking to Xorg were mostly desktop sharing/rdp support 
and the fact that under wayland a gnome-shell segfault takes the whole 
session down without giving user a chance to save their work.
While screen sharing is being actively being worked on, our metrics show 
that gnome-shell errors are still quite common, even in recent versions 
so it's not likely that we change our default for the next LTS.
