    Phoronix: Fedora 23: KDE vs. Xfce vs. GNOME vs. LXDE vs. MATE

    As mentioned earlier some benchmarks to share this weekend are comparing the out-of-the-box OpenGL graphics performance on Fedora 23 when running some benchmarks under KDE Plasma, Xfce, GNOME, LXDE, and MATE.

    Would you mind retesting with the "unredirect and disable compositing when there's a fullscreen application running" features enabled in Plasma 5? It takes two mouse clicks in a config window.

      I think it is very fair to run the software as is. That's the defaults any user are going to get, than you test what the users are going to experience...
      What you are asking is not fair to the other ones. It's like you would have a performance test and your application runs faster because of aggressive caching(Chrome for example), you are satisfied with the result and then somebody has a memory test and sees that your application consumes a lot more memory and you ask them to disable caching and then compare...
      You decided to have that tradeoff, than it is absolutely fair to everybody else to run the defaults on everybody and not tune for each case separately...

            Are gnome-shell's fullscreen windows only redirected on Wayland, or on X11 too? Im wondering, since redirected windows are handled as the possible cause for kwin's slowdown.

              word ...almost same here: xfwm4 + mate 1.10 + numix dark theme, f-darkest icons, infinality without ubuntu font

                Well in my case, I been swamping xfce and mate, until I found the sweet spot, anyway not bad combination mate with xfwm4, maybe in a future I will try that.

                  I run numix circle on plasma 5 and like it a lot. I do not have the feeling that plasma would be any slower than for example xfce.

                    Is Phoronix planning to benchmark KDE without desktop effects?
