    On the last lenghty GTK 4 discussion on Phoronix, people were saying that GTK and GNOME don't get enough quality testing and stuff and that Qt and KDE did. But this seems like something that could've been avoided by proper testing, so it seems like Qt/KDE doesn't get as properly tested as people claimed.
    And there we go ...

              Oh look, a moronic Moronix user hating on goto like it's 1980.

              Patches welcome, as they say. But you can't even read code, obviously.

                  Come on, leave the poor troll alone. 9 posts and the best he could say is everybody "needs a GTX1080 just for Mutter".

                    To be fair, this kind of bug is appalling incompetence from any developer, regardless of what desktop you favour. Seriously, running shell commands without proper escaping would have been a careless error twenty years ago... anyone doing development this decade needs to be absolutely paranoid about this kind of thing...

                      I don't get why KDE executes volume names with bash.

                      The fix should not be to escape the command. They should remove that insecure code and never execute strings readed from anywhere.
