    Phoronix: KDE Plasma 5.13 Is Getting Further Polished Ahead Of Its June Release

    KDE Plasma 5.13 will be starting up even faster, focusing more on Wayland improvements, improved monitor hot-plugging, GTK global menu support, and a lot of polishing throughout...

    I'm waiting for libinput configs to be merged (for mouse), before switching to the Wayland session.

        It's almost a year since I switched from Unity (Gnome) to KDE Plasma 5 and I have to admit the work of this community is impressive. As a Kde user I can not help but thank and try to contribute as much as I can. But I'm happy with what the guys at Kde are doing. Good job.

          Resizing the window is so slow in that GIF. Is that a realistic indication of how Qt/KDE perform?

            Unity is not Gnome, it never has been.

              Yeah, I think he meant that he switched from a GTK-based desktop to a Qt-based one.

                It performs very good on my quite low-end hardware, so I think it's a bug in 5.13 (which is to be expected given the fact that it's still under development).

                  Unity has never been GTK-based. Ubuntu has always shipped GTK and Gnome applications but Unity itself is written using Nux, a niche toolkit nobody else is using, not GTK.
