    Ugh, okay so I think that the per screen clocks is going to fix the issue with Displaylink hubs; which was introduced in Gnome 3.36 (for good reasons). The down side is that Ubuntu 20.04 is locked into 3.36 for the next 5 years and I was really hoping that I could run an LTS release for more than 6 months this time. Le sigh.

    The upside is that my dual 4k 60hz and 144hz 2560x1440 screens might play together a little better now without me having to down clock the 144hz screen to 75hz (or else it's just a black screen).

    you mean downstream fedora packaging?

    That's great! Are they supporting flat color desktop backgrounds yet?

    beauty is in the eye of the beholder. at least you can easily change wallpaper, or use fullscreen apps

    I am currently running Gnome on Fedora 32 (wanted to give it a fair chance), and it's ok for the most part, but than comes a time you want to change something simple, like an entry in the app drawer or a shortcut and you have to either hack it, use 3rd party tool or extension, Then something breaks. And the gnome apps, they sure look cool, but they are so cut-down, good for my girlfriend or grandma who only do simple tasks, but I feel that just about every other DE has better alternatives for advanced users/developers.

    I will switch to KDE on Fedora 33 release or go back to KDE or XFCE Manjaro.
    As someone who ran Tumbleweed on my daily use systems, KDE support seems solid in Fedora. I've never used the official spin, but installing Plasma as the DE from the everything netinstall image results in a pretty minimal system. It doesn't even install things like kate, okular, or ark which most people probably want. The one thing it does install that I didn't care for was the KDE PIM stuff, but that's easy to remove.

    Code:
    sudo dnf remove kf5-akonadi-server
    Everything has been extremely stable across multiple machines. F33 will only be on Plasma 5.19 right around the time 5.20 lands, but so far I have no intention of jumping back to Tumbleweed.

    Could you expand on GnomeOS? I'm not seeing much news about it. Some links would be helpful.

    They merge really big stuff into point releases these days, look at the delta between 3.36.0 and 3.36.6... So I think it will get merged to 3.38!
