    Phoronix: KDE Plasma 5.5 Has Evolved Well Beyond Where Plasma 4 Ended

    Ken Vermette has written a lengthy article for us about his thoughts on the state of the KDE Plasma 5 desktop as of the recent 5.5 release. If you are curious how KDE Plasma 5 is panning out, how it works on Wayland, and much more, this article is a definite must-read.

          I abandoned KDE because of this flat albescent shit.

              Windows and OSX are flat, so too go most of the mainstream desktop environments. BTW, if all the white is bothering you in KDE, there is a dark theme in Breeze that is quite nice.

                  Thanks for the guest post Ken - It is a very well written article that I enjoyed immensely. I look forward to hearing more about how the whole KDE project is coming along and if I find myself with some spare time will definitely try out a live CD.

                    Specially its memory usage has evolved drastically. An empty Plasma session with zero plasmoids and applications running consumes up to 500MB of RAM on a x64 host. Tell me anything but I'm calling this very bad programming. Wonder-fecking-ful.

                    And should I mention the default theme which looks like Windows 8/10 wanna-be grayish mostly single color sh*t?

                    No wonder lots of people stopped using it.
