        Once anything becomes easy to use women become the majority user base. We aren't there yet. Guess kde drank the cool aid too.

          Any work towards 2-in-1 devices? I was KDE user since 2009, but I had to switch to Gnome Shell last year due to lack of touchscreen support in KDE Applications. In Gnome 3 touchscreen support is not perfect either, but much better - you can easily notice difference between KDE and Gnome Shell that was designed with tablets in mind.

              So the vision is to just be configurable? I like it, but to call it a "vision" seems a bit of an exaggeration. Still, way better direction than gnome.

                  Nearly all those "Linux" laptops come from Clevo and similar OEMs, other companies merely assemble them and sometimes slap their branding on them, another reason why KDE Slimbook is overpriced, I found exactly the same laptop for less from another company and with more configuration options.

                    I thought their vision was to drop frames all over the place so that 60FPS video stutters, and make alt+tab not work half the time.
