    I know this is unrelated, but I wish there was more effort put into the Plasma release trailers.

    The GNOME trailers look so much better when compared to the KDE Plasma ones.

      As long as gnome insists on using that horrible Mac-like interface, its going to keep loosing users to move modern and/or conventional desktops.

      If it wasn't for Fedora's spins, Fedora would have long ago gone into obscurity as a redhat-only tool.

          bash2bash Did you read all the GUADEC reports? Downstreams like distributors and other desktops. LOVED the new features, performance gains, themability and systemd integration.

          GNOME is super healthy.

            And also hinder the possibility of new users, and especially the ones that come from Windows. Since they find GNOME being unfamiliar, they'll just go back to Windows because most aren't willing to take the effort of knowing what KDE (or the alternate DE's (or even what a Desktop Environment is)) is.

              144Hz please realize that you have been doing the same on the KDE threads.

                Actually thats not the case. Most people have someone who installes "linux" for them and put some extension to it to make it work like windows. Others, who come from themself to linux dont even expect it to be like windows, because, well - it's not Windows.

                The other way around my mother have has some huge issues on KDE because its "windows like" but a bit different and that was the reason she got really frustratet. Not so much since I switched her to Gnome.


                I also dont see gnome struggle.

                  I really hope the Wayland session won't be a disappointment again. I don't want mouse cursor stutter on harmless shell events and also Mutter's present logic for repeat/discard of frames when fps in games don't match refreshrate was quite bad with the latest stable version.
                  Plasma Wayland has other, even way worse, issues. But cursor and compositor performance just work perfectly there. I can't use something with bad performance.

                    The Gnome UI has absolutely nothing to do with Mac, and one must wonder what kind of a low IQ individual would find the Gnome UI hard to use.
