Re: [OE-core] [PATCH 6/7] default-distrovars.inc: add wayland/opengl to default distro features

Wait a moment, I am not sure I understand the argument about software rendering. Can you please elaborate?

What is the scenario where enabling opengl would regress from something hw-accelerated to software rendering?
