    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.
    Oops sorry I thought you were using another DE for a moment o-o

      How usable is the low latency patch with wayland? As far as I know it didnt support wayland before. I might build it myself instead.

        (Windows XP is buggy though)
        More lightweight than Windows 10 for sure. I was avoiding switch from 7 for a long, but it's EOL so I didn't have a choice. However, there's just very few things I need it for and in not so distant future I'll remove it completely.

          I've wanted to be able to save scum my desktop environment as well.

              Sadly, it's 2020 and Average Joe hasn't grown up in the 8-bit computer era anymore.
              FYI, the Tandy Co. had a 6809E which sported pseudo 16bit capabilities in that you could combine the 8 bit A&B accumulators to give a 16 bit D register, I owned a clone of it at the time. The TI-99 was fully 16 bit.

                As of this point, none. I only support X11.

                In a future I might add in the FT patches for better Wayland support but since they are forking every library I am not sure.

                  I know that. By "8-bit era" I meant as in the '70-'80's.

                    KDE 4 on suse/opensuse was very good. As was KDE 3 before it. Use the correct setup and stay away from tragic RedHat and Canonical messes, and you'll nearly always do well.

                      I can't believe people still hate Plasma 4 to this day... Come on, it was the most polished version of Plasma (before Plasma 5 of course) at the end of its life! (4.14)
                      It has even more customization possibilities than Plasma 5, even to this day.
