I’m on i3, but if I were to go back to a DE, or install one for someone else, it’d be KDE. Its so beautiful, smooth, customizeable, and surprisingly performance wise as good as XFCE.

The reworked app launcher looks legit.

If I had to use a DE I’d personally prefer MATE, but KDE is still good. Just not really my thing :) On a phone I’d definitely go with Plasma Mobile though.

I use LXQt with KWin as window manager. But in moments like this I wonder, why am I bothering. Plasma uses hardly more resources nowadays, it looks great and also feels more integrated.

Well, I also use LXQt + KWin, and it still uses less resources than plasma. The only thing that bothers me is the amount of dependencies imposed by KDE people on everything. Although I don’t use plasma, I need plasma-desktop installed in order to KWin to be properly configured. That said, I’ve tried several WM + compositor combinations (even compiz) with LXQt, and by far KWin is the best fit I’ve found, :)

Plasma does feel more integrated, but the amount of daemons and process running in the background plus dependencies is just crazy, hehe

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
