    Phoronix: Fedora 21 Picks Up More Features, KDE Plasma To Be A Product In F22

    There were more features approved for inclusion into Fedora 21 and already talk of making a KDE Plasma Fedora product for the Fedora 22 release given its popularity...

    For us followers and users of Fedora KDE, this is great news. It means that we may see more support for distro-specific tools and patches, designed and tailored with Fedora Plasma in mind. A vision: a desktop for power users. A soul: an user who does more with his computer than simply using productivity software and browsing the Internet.

    Please, make it happen.

      That isn't the vision of the Fedora Plasma product proposal

      https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_Plasma_Product

      "Fedora Plasma Product aims at scientists, students and teachers. We believe that Fedora could serve as number one scientific and educational distribution"

      In essence, this will become a successor to the Fedora Scientific Spin which already uses KDE.

              Today a Red Hat employee explained to you that educators and scientists (i.e. intelligent people) prefer KDE.

              I understand that this must hurt you.

                To be clear, this isn't anything I said. I am just showing what the proposal says.

                      It was an article about the rising popularity of KDE, and about Fedora users demanding more KDE. And about Fedora continuing to use KDE as default on their Educational and Science-oriented versions. And this is on the heels of KDE being voted the best DE on several sites.

                      I understand that this has hit you very hard. You told us that KDE was dead two years ago, and now all this.

                        How, specifically, was it degraded? It maintained its QA and blocking status, and now it has been recommended that KDE be promoted. The absolute worst-case scenario is that things stay how they have always been, and the best-case scenario (which all indications are is the one we are most likely to see) KDE will get a big boost.

                          This is correct. Either it will remain a spin or become a product. A product maybe a step up with more overhead. In either case, there is no degradation. It is a growing sub community within Fedora, partly because it has gained more volunteers and partly because Red Hat has hired more full time KDE developers who have developed major upstream components such as the plasma network manager UI

                            Try to be DE Agnostic...

                            I find myself using KDE more often than not anymore. I do cycle through XFCE, Gnome, Cinnamon, and sometimes Mate on a semi regular basis. I enjoy each for a time, for different reasons. Then, I find myself back on KDE for a good long while again. I do try other desktops as well on occasion... Good to hear KDE really is stepping up, distro-wise.
