  • KDE Squashes Many "Annoying" Bugs As It Works To Improve The Desktop's Reliability.

    Phoronix: KDE Squashes Many "Annoying" Bugs As It Works To Improve The Desktop's Reliability.

    KDE developers are trying to ensure the reliability of their desktop environment and thus they have recently begun a renewed effort on bug fixing. There is also talk of starting a KDE initiative focused on "15 minute bugs" for "embarrassing" issues that can be easily found within minutes. In any event, this week saw a lot of bug fixing in the KDE world...

    I'm still waiting for the day when KDE will be again at the usability level of KDE 3.5.

      It could've happened in 2-3 years but since Qt6 was out a year ago they'll start moving to it relatively soon, thus, no soup for you!!

      OTOH I'm tired waiting for it to work on Wayland as well as on X11.

        There are 3 certain things.

        Death, taxes and KDE non-stop fixing bugs.

        Still a plus.

            I was a KDE 3.5 user, and Plasma 5 has better usability than the old KDE 3.5

              Death, taxes and [put the desktop that you want, cause all of them are software] non-stop fixing bugs

                  That day has long happened.

                  Seems you missed the sun rise. Maybe time to open the curtains?

                    Kate has been replaced with KWrite in the default set of favorite apps, since it’s a bit more user-friendly and less programmer-centric (me: Nate Graham, Plasma 5.24)
                    Really? Well fuck me that sucks. Y'all just added a new post-install tweak -- replace KWrite with Kate.

                    There's a simple reason everyone on Windows installs Notepad++ and it's the same reason we don't use Notepad, Wordpad, or KWrite -- it's because the second you need to do more than simple text editing you realize that all those programs suck and that you need something like Notepad++ or Kate to be productive.

                    I'd add Gedit to that list but I haven't been able to be productive with Gedit since the GNOME2 days. The Gedit transition from GTK 2 to 3 was too much for me to handle. True story: the Debian Sid update that changed Gedit from GTK2 to 3 is literally the month I switched from Debian to Arch and started desktop and window manager hopping over to KDE...nearly a decade ago. For a little bit I settled on XFCE+KWin until XFCE went an updated to GTK3. Anyhoo, needless to say I have strong feelings about messing with the default text editor. I think a lot of us geeks have hangups on the default text editor.

                    Vi rules, Emacs sucks, Nano is easy so it's default
