    Tiling was rather basic, ok, but just slapped on top, dragging a window out of tiling by mistake was getting on my nerves and the modes were funky... but yeah it made me curious to try real tiling managers and I ended up with i3 ( www.i3wm.org )

    That is really not the line of reasoning that is going to be flattering to the GNOME camp

    Anyway, the reason it was removed was that almost nobody used it -- tiling people use tiling window managers as a rule.

    Tiling was removed from KWin very recently, so nobody has written a script for that yet. It could be written, though, as KWin is fully scriptable via JavaScript.

    You could run a slightly older version of KDE (4.9 should have it) in the meantime, if tiling is important to you.

    So one point for you there, I guess.

    Plasma is a framework for writing user interfaces. You can do anything in it. Welcome to 2008.

    This is not about being smart or well balanced. This is just d... measuring. Now it is confirmed that mr LT is on gnome so that will be told like a million times. Just like it was during the short periods of mr LTs use of XFCE or KDE. Back then it was seen as a sign gnome was dead. Just like some cherrypicked blog posts. That was all total shit. Now the tides have turned and the anti-gnome boon squad get the treatment. Lol.

    Draw your own conclusions.

    here are so much flamewars its just retarded. Lets stick to ONE please, else you cant argue anything, there are all the gnome haters, ok lets talk gnome vs XX, then I talk gnome3 vs gnome2 advantages, then I hear yeah there was DE xy nobody ever used, that had that forever... Not enough now there are the LInux-DE all haters, that just say Windows UI is the best (rofl).

    Here many people mix stuff, up, they mix up personal preverences with "better" or not "better". Here mix people up that they really hate the guis because Xserver sucks and is on his end of live span and get replaced soon. So yes its maybe not all hyper-reactive and so on because X just sucks.

    But to say Widnows would be a better gui is just retarded, I mean ok subvectionism allows you to say that you find that water from a nuclear plant looks tastier than a water from a fresh source stupid example but I dont could think just of a better ^^. But Windows is ok if you open 2-3 windows more or less only on fullscreen, as game-starter its ok, yes, but to work with? No Workspaces? Really? Non skaling (per dpi) stuff inkl. fonts, maybe they fixed that for windows 8 else windows would be totaly not usable on a tablet, but whatever.

    And even if it would be on the same level (except you have no different options, use that or fuck yourself) its out of competition because it not only cost money but is unfree drm system. If you are glad with that, go let yourself vendor lockin, and spyed on etc. Thats the primary reason to switch to linux, if thats not the point, and you hate the linux guis because your subjective feelings, why the hell would you wanna start a flame war how bad kde or gnome is, just use windows and shut the fuck up on stop reading stuff on a linux web site.

    To the fraction that said "that could be made with kde3, by tweaking some setings" maybe thats kind of true, possible, but 1. you had to know that this usesheme is a good one, am a a gui developer or a user? I dont know before I use it what is good for me, often, I cant think in every matter of my live from my self what is best for me. I am no expert to everything. So if kde would have released a kde-tweaked-version that would have this settings maybe it would been a success, but they didnt.

    Its the gui- experts that desides some stuff for me, that they know most of the time better what is a good way of work-flows, that I am happpy with, and of course its good when there are some ways forks or extentions or whatever to change that if you are really with something not happy how it is. I dont, I am not totaly fixed on how guis worked since windows 95 or even earlier and dont want to have a windows 95 like gui for 40-50 years.


    And why are there so many distros, because all they do do the others most of the time too but slightly different maybe or often not even that, if you look at the ubuntu blends there often most stuff is exact the same, and still they make this distribution, because the packaging together and the default settings matters.

    If I am a gui-developer maybe I would love kde for its freedom of choices, but I am not.

    And then there is another point, maybe I am here really alone, but some people have a preference about a look&feel, ok I could then easily switch to the gnome-forks but not to kde, if I like the gnome look&feel more, and no the gnomish icons + themes and stuff dont create a real gnome feeling to a kde.

    I hope I got most topics under, like I said there are to much different flamewars in this thread now...

    I actually like Linus nosing around projects, keeps devs on their toes and brings media/users attention to those projects in good and bad ways. Keep the FUs coming Torvalds! Too bad you did not start this desktop pursuit back in 2003 or something, who knows...

    Well, it hurts the KDE crowd that gnome is much more extendable. So expect alot of denial. It is funny and sad at the same time.
