Not justifying the choices of the developers, but if it’s a deal breaker for you, you always have the option of not using the website.


KDE Plasma, it’s been nothing but a great experience, it’s a beast of an environment. Plus, its accompanying software ecosystem makes it 10x better.




I like to jump between Lemmy and Reddit, and I think these are the only two I use.


Thank youu <3 It certainly took me a while to coordinate the colors so there’s a clear harmony between them, but it was so worth it :)


It’s cool to see universities adopting these technologies! wish my uni did this…

Linen + Plasma

I’m betting on elementaryOS too, they’re doing great work without directly copying everything about macOS.


This is so true, I use Arch Linux, and since I built my system from the ground up (minus the kernel part). I know what’s in my system, if something breaks, I know where to look and how to debug it.

I’ve never been tempted to go back to Windows once I realized how much it meant to me that I finally have control over what my system does.

Long gone are the days where the only fix you (or Microsoft “MVPs”) can come up with is rebooting your machine.



I think you actively using the program and recommending it to people, goes a long way and warms the heart of developers to see people using the code they spent hours upon hours on.

Enjoying, and spreading the word about great software is another form of donation, and they all count :)


Thank you :D I was sort of going for a tiling WM look but without actually having a tiling script/WM installed.


Nope, can’t really do that because of my NVIDIA card :/


I’ve recently come to the conclusion that no theme is more consistent than Breeze itself.
Breeze isn’t perfect, but I don’t think it ever aimed to be perfect, but it’s consistent, and it’s easy on the eyes, and it’s rather simple and unique in its own way. I did use other themes, but nothing (for me) comes close to Breeze, even though the KDE community is doing great work with custom themes.

(By the way, your desktop rice looks really nice :D )



I should’ve clarified that no tiling script is being utilized, it was done manually to make the windows appear in a more aesthetic manner. But if you’d like to use tiling scripts in KDE (under KWin) then I’ve heard Krohnkite is a good option.


I kept it default, but removed the title bars and kick-off menu, slightly tweaked the colors and made it a lot more keyboard friendly. KDE Plasma is beautiful by default, but it's not configured to be fully utilized by a keyboard only, which is what my desktop workflow aims to fix: keyboard shortcuts + krunner for searching for stuff + more screen real estate by removing non essential desktop components. - [Wallpaper](https://unsplash.com/photos/RAZU_R66vUc) - Theme: Breeze - Icons: Breeze - Editor: Neovim - Editor Theme: [PaperColor](https://github.com/NLKNguyen/papercolor-theme)

What do you mean by “save/download”?


Well I use Firefox, and Librewolf is a fork of Firefox, so I’m not sure why the browser matters.


Hi! I'm the creator of Macchina, a basic system information fetching tool, it's a minimal take on Neofetch, comes with multiple built-in themes and arguments to allow you to change its looks and behavior on the fly! I first introduced it on this very website, and the feedback I got made me push through the times Macchina made me want to punch myself in the face, but I made the right decision to choose Rust for this little project of mine, because Rust made me enjoy programming again! It's available on [crates.io](https://crates.io/crates/macchina), the [AUR](https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/macchina/), and [Github](https://github.com/grtcdr/macchina)!
