    Aren't many bugs related to upstream projects as well? I mean if developers use software from a stable platform they hardly will notice the bug fixes that made it work... at least my experience on Arch Linux with testing enabled showed a lot of bugs that a developer must notice as well, but I guess all the upstream packages like the latest Qt are not considered early enough (even though it is the fault of e.g. Qt it they break something).
    The thing is, KDE must run an various stacks (Qt, drivers and whatnot). It's the distro maintainers' job to make sure they publish stuff that works together. As Neon demonstrates, it is possible to have a working Plasma environment that is also lean. KDE itself cannot control which Qt or driver runs underneath it, it can only require a minimum version.
    I imagine Gnome (or any other DE) faces the same challenges.

      Compositing problems is a very common issue in the Linux world. Tried out my Skylake IGP on Arch and Gnome, and guess what: Result wasn't perfect, desktop compositing ran with 75Hz but Firefox continued to run with 60Hz.

      No need to always bash Plasma for things that are flawed in a much broader way.

        Seeing how much KDE has improved the its developers attitude, I'm thinking in a year or two, I will be able to move completely from Windows 7 to KDE.
        I hope they will tweak a little bit the windows control buttons (minimize, maximize/restore, close) and make them bigger and with some background colors like Windows 7.

          There's Plasma themes for that. A whole bunch of them fit your criteria.
          Even Win XP, Win7 or Win10 clones.

              Love the attempt at smugness over 'Desktop Linux'

              Afterall, employee productivity is best spent fucking around with the latest iteration of whatever the clowns working on KDE or Gnome have crapped out.

                I'm not talking about firefox. I'm talking about:

                Kwin frame skipping.

                Alt+tab not working.

                  What do I need to do to experience such issues?

                    In fact Kde 4 I never liked, I started to appreciate Kde when I went to Kde 5 Plasma 5. Kde 4 did not make any sense in my opinion.

                      I wastn't aware of this.
                      I found and use and XP theme on Cinnamon looking at their online themes provided. but in KDE, when I tested it, I saw that there are only 2 themes available: white one (default and a dark one. I haven't seen a button or link to search for more.
                      I think I'll have to look again.
                      Thanks for pointing me in the direction of what I want!
