Up to these postings I hadn't known about how easy to install it, so I tried it myself on my Rawhide by simply doing 'dnf install kde-plasma-workspace' followed by a reboot:

Even so, there was a display. On both my actually two screens! And Firefox worked well! Yeah, some troubles with the panel and so, o.k., and as there's reported, Ragnaroek at logout.

But don't you guys be that impatient! Things will grow up, future will arrive even sooner you believe, the door is wide! It's got just more than a hopeful beginning ... ; )

Thanks. I tried it but it's not ready for prime time. It starts up and
seems to restore my session, but is very laggy. Plasma is
consuming around 70% of my CPU (an i7 with 16GB). It also dies when
logging out (i.e. I get a blank screen and have to reset the box).

Do you mean "plasma" or "kwin_wayland"?  On a system with just a blank desktop
"kwin_wayland" was sitting pegged at about 98% CPU.  After a few minutes, it dropped out
of the "top" screen.  I then started a konsole instance and it seemed to take a long time
to get it going and kwin_wayland was back at 98%.  Then, leaving things sit idle it again
dropped down to a very small % of CPU for a while and then back to high CPU usage.  Seems
to cycle through something.  Mouse movement is very jerky.  I then clicked on the "menu"
icon and the system is totally non responsive.  The disk activity light is on constantly
and the mouse is frozen.

I was watching this from a ssh session that I had open.  I issued an "init 6" and after 3
minutes of waiting with no reboot I hit the power button.

Back to X for now.

Consistently under 1% CPU usage here for both. Only issue I see so far is everything
looks bigger on the screen, like the resolution has changed.

Is yours a fresh install or an upgrade?

Upgrade from Fedora 24 using fedup
