    It turns out that GNOME Classic uses x11. >_<

    I switched to "regular" GNOME and now it shows "Window Protocol: wayland"

    Yes, it does.

    On Leap 15.1, SLE classic uses Wayland but Gnome classic uses X11. On Tumbleweed, they both use X11, but I think that's a change with Gnome 3.32. Probably SLE Classic has not yet been fully integrated into Gnome 3.32.

    For others who may also not yet be aware....openSUSE Leap documentation....

    https://doc.opensuse.org/documentati...ser.start.html

    GNOME (default)
    A GNOME 3 configuration that is very close to the upstream design. It focuses on interrupting users as little as possible. However, starting applications and switching between them works differently from many other desktop operating systems. It uses a single panel at the top of the screen. This session is started on Wayland.

    GNOME on Xorg
    By default openSUSE Leap uses GNOME with Wayland. Choose this option to start GNOME on Xorg.

    GNOME Classic
    A GNOME 3 configuration that is designed to appeal to former users of GNOME 2. The desktop has two panels, one at the top and another at the bottom.

    SLE Classic
    The GNOME look and feel that was used on SUSE Linux Enterprise 12. This desktop is a GNOME 3 configuration and uses a single panel that is placed at the bottom of the screen. This session is started on Wayland.

    @mvaar in post 5,

    That is exactly what I have been saying for years and years but I always get the answer: No, Linux is all about choices. We need 1000+ distro's, 10-20 different desktop environment systems, I don't know how many different software systems, we need all of that.
    I wish smart people who are in charge of different distro's would finally come together and discuss how to proceed in the making of ONE Linux, one to rule them all.

    Just as soon as they do that, you will start to complain about something that you don't like. So you will create your own distro. And then there will be two distros. And, before long, there will be many.

    In any case, there is one distro to rule them all. It is called "openSUSE"
