    Ah yes, the server side decoration fraction blaming wasted vertical space in a menu you only open if you rearrange windows over workspaces/monitors or open apps.
    I have tried Plasma Mobile. It is actually quickly becoming pretty sharp, and it runs smoother than phosh thanks to full GPU acceleration in QT which Phosh does not currently have. Plus it's not even released yet. Give it a few months however and i think it will be in a daily driver state, as development has quickly accelerated now that developers have access to the pinephone as the official KDE Plasma Mobile development hardware (which will mean in the end Plasma Mobile will only get further optimizations to run better on the lower-end pinephone hardware).

    Phosh might be more stable, but it too still has lots of UI booboos and bugs (Not to mention Plasma Mobile has more features).

      The perfect desktop for people who use touch screens and tablets, everyone else, well maybe not so much. Plasma5 is serving my purposes just fine atm, minus a few hick-ups, like terrible/broken wayland support!

        So this is what all the major distributors are going to ship in a few months. Nice.

          After tweaking it and shipping it with 5-10 extensions. And another one to start with the session directly.

          Sure.

            The thing I like most is the hot-corner acting as alt-tab..
            I got used to that so much that when I dual boot into Windows 10 that I always try to put the mouse pointer to the top left side of the screen in order to switch Windows...
            I don't even use that. Search is really nice. Just press windows key and type in.

              Basic computer users are running Windows.

                Who taught them to use Windows then? Let those basic computer users run on GNOME Shell with similar applications and see their reactions once they are back using Microsoft Windows desktop environment.

                    I've created an issue to discuss the change to horizontal workspaces by default.

                      Well it's quite interesting to look at many people who have tried GNOME several years ago or even have never tried in reality to talk about or even judge GNOME design. No matter how ironical is the world. I use the GNOME every day and like the design anyway.
