    plasmashell --version
    Why do you need the terminal? If you started Plasma already, Alt+Space->info and open Info Center. It will show you a lot more info

      Full-time? What did you use before?

          Exactly! Average Joe refuses to touch the terminal.

            At one time when the average Joe bought their Vic 20, Tandy Color, ZX Spectrum etc a blinking cursor was all they had and no fancy GUI, I remember those days well.

              it is the year 2020. i've been using unix since 1982. i've been using linux since the late 90's (daily). and i'm *still* waiting for a desktop environment that can save my open applications, their screen position and sizes, and their virtual root window placements as part of a persistent session. i'm old. and at this point i feel like i'm going to kick the bucket before this ever happens :-).

                I think he just compared Windows to 2002 CPU which is quite valid comparison.

                  Those were the times.




                  Sadly, it's 2020 and Average Joe hasn't grown up in the 8-bit computer era anymore.

                    This is sort of true though, since Windows XP and Windows 7 were faster back then.

                    (Windows XP is buggy though)

                      I used KDE plasma X11 with low latency patch. There is no low latency patch on my distro for 5.19 for the time being.
                      I might built it myself, how usable is the low latency patch with wayland?

                      KDE unlike windows works well and provides a good user experience
