    Your opinion is nightmare.

    Yes, just like KDE. But at least windows isn't based on Qt.

    Well, then you're waiting for the wrong thing to happen. The DE cannot restore your app by itself, the DE does not know about application's data. In order for restore to work, each and every app has to cooperate. As has been the case for years, some do and some don't. I don't see that changing, but that's not the DE's fault.

    In my case, KDE restores Konsole (with tabs), Firefox, Krusader just fine. IntelliJ Idea/Android Studio, not so much; I think it misses some open files from time to time. That's what I use most of the time.

    Oh, don't get me wrong. A good terminal is crucial for a good OS, I love using one, scripting and stuff. I was just pointing out, if you're interested about the Plasma version, you're not logged into a headless server, you might as well use the better tool for the job.

    Phoronix did a comparison between KDE and Xfce/Gnome and found out that KDE actually uses a lot less memory/resources. It might be a Neon thing but if I check the amount of memory/CPU that Plasma and other KDE processes use its basically negligable.
