    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

    Default 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.
