    Again KDE vs. GNOME wars started but the true Master of DEs is Budgie!

      Iirc, when you turn off a DP monitor, it actually goes away (as if unplugged). So that's easy to tell. HDMI doesn't do that though, so it might be tougher.
      Bear in mind, I have little knowledge of inner working of DP and HDMI, this is just something I've picked up at some point.

        You must be confusing "user friendly" with "idiot proof". A common mistake.

        To me, Gnome is as confusing as trying to navigate iOS without a back button.

          KDE looks so terrible, awful and confusing. The most user-unfriendly and worst usability desktop of all time.
          This is what I call a sad life, stick around like a lost soul initiating flame wars.

            Not really. I mean Windows has its quirks, just like Kde and Gnome, but in the end is pretty usable

                Gentlemen!
                Let us all agree they both are awful and that XFCE is best.
                Also, turn off all the compositing and effects junk. All it does is burn CPU and GPU cycles for no benefit.

                  The tribalism regarding DEs is baffling. A lot of us found ourselves migrating to kde when our previous choice just stopped working due to design choices. It has nothing to do with loyalty. Lamenting someone else's forced choice is putting a square peg in a round hole.

                      It'd be usable if the search wasn't hot garbage :P The massive latency would be bad enough as is, but the fact that it only sometimes gives you the application you want just makes using it a nightmare.

                      For one, try searching "uninstall". Half the time, the first result, instead of "Add or remove programs" or whatever the entry is called, it gives you just the settings app itself:

                      Settings
                      Related: "uninstall"
