Plasma is fantastic! It offers a good amount of control and the KDE apps are generally high quality. I use it with Latte Dock and I’m very happy!


I’ve gone the i3 route, but if I went back to a DE, or had anyone else use one, it’d be plasma. What’s neat is even with all this prettiness, its supposed to be more performant and less RAM heavy than XFCE4 now.

Nice! I’ve been meaning to try out a tiling window manager but haven’t gotten around to it.

And yeah! I did some “thumb in the air” benchmarks on Plasma, Gnome, and XFCE a couple years back (just looking at memory consumption with top), and Plasma was surprisingly low! Much better than the KDE of old.

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.
