      Glad I’m not alone… I can glance an article in 30 seconds, so I fail to see how video is a better format for this.

      For udemy teachings, yes, video is great. But it’s way overused for everything.

        Nice to hear this 🙂 I love reading. Almost never watch videos, and I usually prefer listening to music audio only.

    What people usually really don’t know about is that you can make Plasma use under 500MB of RAM, and make it as snappy as any tiling WM, just through its GUI options without even touching the command line.

        I went into the animation settings and disabled them all. Then I went into the background service settings and disabled autostart for all of them.
        I use kwin-bismuth to turn plasma into a tiling window manager, set up my keybindings for moving windows around, etc. Then I define window rules in kwin settings, so each application I use starts on a dedicated workspace.
        I basically just use plasma underneathe it so I don’t need to worry about stuff like automounting, media keys, fonts, theming, bluetooth and all that jazz. It works out of the box, and I think it’s dumb to have to configure it all in a tiling WM.
