    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.[/QUOTE]

    It looks like KDE3!!! Good old days........

    Any info about the RAM usage of liquidshell???

    Would like to compare it to LXQt...

    i dont know about lxqt though. do they use kio too?
    No. But i don't know if it can be used.

    The wm, for example, is configurable. I prefer to use kwin over openbox, for example, as it doesn't slow my computer, is well maintained and has a lot of features.

    So maybe kio can also be used... But it's not default afaik

    If that's your idea of wasted space, titlebars are a way bigger waste of space:




    Sorry, I have no idea what a shade widget is.
    And that is exactly my point. Its still the same problem exactly. Take two CSD apps, one requests a title bar and the other one doesn't, firstly -that- is a broken look and feel. And secondly, one has fully functional window management and the other doesn't and -that- is an even worse broken look and feel. And if you don't know what shade is in terms of window management then -that- is entirely my point that its not an app devs job to do window managent.

    If you're arguing that the only soltion is to expose the titlebar, then -that- is an argument that CSD is a failure as a concept.

    also, completely empty white space -IS- wasted space. might as well make your apps completely blank dialogs for crying out loud...​

    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?

    I disagree with you whole heartedly, it's still not the app devs job or the widget sets job to do window management.
    You are entitled to your opinion for sure.

    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.
