      I wonder how good their copy-and-paste support works.
      On Wayland it works really bad, it only works when the source application is still open when you paste. If you copy something, then close the application, then you cannot paste it. You lose the clipboard buffer when closing the source application.

        I think that's a bug 'cause I've had that happen on X11 countless times over the years (and also a couple of times on Android).

          Distrowatch doesn't do benchmarks, but Jesse Smith tried to review Sculpt OS for them this past January. It did not go well. Many programs that were necessary to do basic functions like web browsing were listed as available but then could not be found for installation by the package manager. He gave up and declared it an unusable mess.

            That is really stupid. Too much security and isolation now causes problems for simple things like copy-pasting.

              afaik this isn't an issue on KDE, there is a clipboard helper in the tray that does this work of keeping the clipboard contents if you close stuff.
