    Good news ! We have to wait till june to see that in action.
    Perfect if KDE devs could also fix this bug (https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=385880) that makes global menu with KDE unusable under Wayland.

        Good news ! Now we just have to wait until June to try that.
        Hope KDE devs will also fix this bug, that will fix global menus under Wayland.

            GTK Devs: Server side is deprecated - lets implement Client Side Decorations!
            KDE: Lets support only Server Side Decorations

            GTK Devs: Lets rebuild Pulseaudio as an Audio/Video thing! (pipewire)
            KDE: Phasing out Kmix and replacing it with a Pulseaudio only mixer

            GTK Devs: Lets phasing out ugly menübars
            KDE: Lets support Menübars

            Is it only me or is KDE supporting things, when Gnome moves to the next stage already?

                Yeah KDE cares about things that work and doesn't following fashion around handicapping their applications. Besides you have most of your points wrong. KDE is notorious for supporting everything. It is Gnomes that take away choice for the latest fad

                  It's GNOME devs constantly coming up with new ways of breaking compatibility with existing software.

                    That's so wrong it couldn't be any wronger :P

                    KDE supports CSD and SSD, just like any DE should. GNOME requires the whole world to implement CSD, otherwise there're no window decorations for you. Try to run any SDL app, or, say, mpv, natively under GNOME on Wayland - there's no window decorations, just because of GNOME's stubbornness. Those libs/apps don't use any toolkit (because why would they?), so they would have to implement window decorations all by themselves, with no way to be consistent with the rest of the system - and they have sanely chosen not to do it at all.
