    Will it make it into Debian testing, or no because of the freeze?

        Is it just me who thinks that if they made the Menu's buttons vertical instead of horizontal, it would be way better?

          Global menus are back in KDE? Looks like I'll have to give this a shot. I switched to Gnome 3 from unity for the polish and grid plugin but I miss having a real global menu every day.

            If only KDE was available on a decent distro.. as a primary target, not an afterthought.

              KDE neon and KaOS are not decent?? They both target kde as main platform and are doing quite nice.

                Neon is supposed to be a showcase OS, not something I can put on a dev machine. it is also Ubuntu based (ugh). KaOS? First time heared about it which is not a good sign.

                I guess OpenSUSE is the closest thing to what I'd consider decent KDE distro. Fedora would be perfect but they half bake the KDE spin.

                  Call KDE bloated or anything you want, they're still leading in functionality and customization capabilities.

                    When I tried Neon a few months back, it broke all over the place because of upgraded Qt but unupdated apps from Ubuntu repos. Especially if you dared install anything not installed by default.
