      Yesterday I installed Neon for trying. Heavy, heavy, and heavy. The the only ram usage say nothing. Kde4 Plasma was way better.

          For me, the most important is
          The Baloo file indexer no longer skips indexing the filenames of files with a blacklisted MIME type (i.e. those whose contents are not useful to index); it will now always index filenames, but only perform full content indexing for files whose content makes sense to index. This should make it better overall at finding files but use hardly any more resources in the process (Stefan BrĂ¼ns, Frameworks 5.72)
          . Should have alwas been like that.

            No issues on my side. Try upgrading your CPU from 2002 before complaining.

            Been using the plasma wayland session 5.19 with Qt 5.15 and very satisfied

                I am surprised with how well the 5.19 wayland session works compared to previous tries of plasma wayland. I switched to it fulltime

                  LOL. Plasma 5 isn't perfect and I actually gave up on it (but it's still better than some other DE's out there!), but no way in hell that that KDE 4 crap was better. KDE 4 should've never been marked stable. Even GNOME Shell is better than KDE 4 ever was.
