      Does someone really use it on a daily basis (except Trinity developers) ? Because well, it's true that before KDE 4.2 the 4.x branch sucked but it is no longer the case, and the 5.x branch has been perfectly stable since 2018.

      Basically between the moment a new major KDE release is announced and the moment it becomes useable wait 2-3 years.

        I'd like Trinity to stop doing whatever they are doing now and
        • Migrate from Qt3 to Qt5/6 (which a mammoth task but has a ton of benefits)
        • Throw away artsd which has long become unnecessary
        • Add native Wayland support
        • Throw away KHTML and replace it with something supported and modern, e.g. QtWebKit
        • Rewrite Kicker (in its original form it's a hack on top of a hack)
        That would be the best Linux DE ever: fast, classic, clear, extremely easy to use, highly customizable.

          Because of KDE's deal-breaking refusal to fully support xrandr features I need (see https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=415876), I've reverted to TDE and am very happy with it. And I'm an environmental-supercomputing developer,not a TDE developer.

            Would it not be just another LXQt then?

              I've used it for months until a few months ago. I really love TDE, but a couple of issues/problems forced me to leave it for the moment: the file manager randomly crashes while copying files, poor implementation of the xds protocol. It is the only real, free, usable alternative to the quasi-commercial DE.

                In terms of features LXQt is still nowhere near KDE 3.5. And KDE3.5 is not just a DE, it's a suite of very powerful applications.

                  Kde2 was a little better than Kde3 (i'm not kidding).

                    I absolutely adored KDE 3.x way back when. Memories.
