    I think KArchive is pretty interesting since it has support for a lot of formats while having no dependencies... And also, it's simple to use, you just feed it files and it does the job... If you install libraries for lzma for example, it automatically can support that format to...

    What does this mean for someone who has KDE installed as a standard install on Arch? Will KDE 4 be automatically updated to 5 through a standard pacman update at any point?

    I tried the instructions in the linked article but gave up after it said it was going to replace something from my KDE 4 installation, or there was a conflict or something. And while this was mentioned in the article, I wasn't exactly clear whether I could just replace the package without issue, and I couldn't be bothered to research at the time so I abandoned it.

    KDE is an excellent operating system only missing a good desktop environment.

    What does "this" mean for you in the context of the article?

    Will KArchive work with Wayland? Sure
    Will ThreadWeaver work with Wayland? Sure
    Will Solid work with Wayland? Sure
    Will KI18n work with Wayland? Sure
    Will KCoreAddons work with Wayland? Sure
    Will KWindowSystem work with Wayland? Probably not at this release
    Will Sonnet work with Wayland? Sure
    and so on

    Cheers,

    You mean good default settings and a good theme? Ah! It's way clearer that way.
