    You can blame Gnome devs for that because in Plasma Gnome apps are styled and scaled really well.

    I love the fact they are using rust, tiling, and doing custom work. I hate the fact it looks like a toddlers computer.

    I know they are moving from Gnome to Cosmic, but I hope they find a new design.

    You do realize this is largely down to Qt & GTK themselves?

    That's because Red Hat / Fedora stopped working on QGNOMEPlatform:


    Qt's modular nature extends beyond simple tweaks like CSS. You can provide real deep integration into your platform but because this requires dealing with private headers and tends to break a lot, Fedora couldn't be bothered anymore.

    Very exciting to have a genuine 3rd option for desktops in Linux. I really expect System76 to do an excellent job with this.

    All the apps labelled "IntelliJ IDEA Community" in the (mockup?) pic:

    - GitHub Desktop
    - Sublime Text
    - Godot Editor
    - Atom

    Excited for this. I'm hoping the theming extends to QT apps eventually.

    Indeed, no cosmic-viewer nor cosmic-monitor repo on their github yet. I guess they want to polish their existing apps and libcosmic before jumping on the next ones. I think cosmic-player will not be a prio though.
    Their aim is to get a good working product out but not to be a perfect product from day 1. Gnome and KDE have had 20 odd years to build all these features, Cosmic looks good but you just cant expect it to be fully feature compatible. I personally am eager to try out the finished product, though whenever it ends up hitting Fedora.

    Im not sure they have an image viewer yet, though cosmic-player might double as one when it's done.
