    There is no way anyone from the basketcase that is the KDE team actually uses KDE.

    Gotta hand it to the Linux community, they actually have managed to make their two leading destkops, KDE and Gnome, suck worse than each other.
    Bullcrap. I use KDE and I'm happy with it, why wouldn't the developers be?
    Now, what could be a problem, is developers become so accustomed to common bugs and quirks, they don't notice them anymore. I know I've fallen into that trap more times than I care to admit. But that's why developers don't manage releases

    I got KWin compositing running with 75Hz and video playback in mpv is stutter-free.

    Troll? Sorry but I had the exact same problem too, on KDE 5.10, but I fixed it by patching KWin to use DRM for VSync (the RefreshRate=100 solution introduces input lag).

    I use KDE on Arch Linux since years and there have been a lot of bugs, but recently I have the feeling quality it is steadily improving. A lot of issues have been related to graphic drivers and Qt. I can even run Plasma-Wayland on my AMD GPU quite stable :-)

    Yeah, that works too. Choosing between the two is a "work best for this system setup" thing. Some KDE devs (or openSUSE KDE mantainers, can't remember correctly) stated in thread forums and reddit that changing GL iddle loop to USLEEP might cause FPS drop in some games.

    This is so true. I'm still waiting for NVIDIA to solve that nasty texture buffer corruption after resume from S3. Hell, even they admit its a temporary workaround and not an expected behaviour.

    My mother uses it.

    That is a problem of the Nvidia driver, not Plasma. Every compositor on Linux is troublesome with Nvidia. Gnome doesn't have tearing, but it's a stuttery mess in exchange.

    That is an annoying one. Having said that, putting this
    Code:
    export KWIN_TRIPLE_BUFFER=1
    in /etc/profile.d/kwin.sh solved for me. Never had screen tearing again and game performance is the same.

    How did they build Firefox there? Qt support in it was rotting away, and IPC embedlite died out as well.
