    I don't recall ever having issue of window placement or fullscreen. I have had issues with shading, but, that happens so rarely, especially since I use multiple workspaces all the time (where shading and task management on a single display becomes less relevant).

    We cannot have that behaviour in this establishment.
    It does not let app developers go for SSD.

    You are just a hardcore GNOME fanboy.

    I've used interfaces with and without CSD, and it's never been a significant issue to me either way. Sure, anyone would prefer consistency, but as long as the software functions the way I need it to, I really don't see why decorations matter that much.

    except it lacks every major window management feature... place above or below, shade, fullscreen, etc... and it breaks look and feel... and look at how much white space there is... how -exactly- is any of that convenient?

    because in every extent scenario CSD breaks look and feel and also most app developers refuse to implement common wm functionality. It just isn an app devs job to do window management.

    Yeah, I thought Xfce was all about "good, slow development"? At least that's what fanboys keep saying...

    For a regular computer, Plasma without any doubts.
    For old or special machines where all resources count I definitely prefer LXQt!

    Both avoid CSD and I couldn't agree more with the choice!
    If you like Plasma so much, then why don't you use the LiquidShell DE on older computers? It's basically Plasma but optimized for older computers.

    What does a file menu have to do with CSD?

    What might be going on is that the application is gradually resized when maximizing which causes many redraws (which may be more expensive than resizing a window with server side decorations depending on how the compositor handles resizing/maximizing (it may, for example, choose to only redraw the frame)) which slows this down, but that would be caused by the compositor and not the toolkit.
    Yeah I didn't mean that the actual resizing is done exactly how I wrote, but I was talking more about how the calculation is done and that it is more expensive.

    Hmmm maybe I have misunderstood something then, thx for the comment.
