Gnome is showing some polish with this current version. gnome-3.22.2
I downloaded a number of ttf fonts for more customizations later. I had to use the AUR for megasync, my synchronization application of choice.
GNOME is using Wayland now by default. The user can choose Xorg when they log in to the desktop though. If you have applications that do not play well with Wayland yet, you can tick that.
So far GNOME in Wayland is zero glitches.
