    Phoronix: KDE's Leaner Experience On openSUSE Tumbleweed vs. Ubuntu 17.04

    With the Power Use, RAM + Boot Times With Unity, Xfce, GNOME, LXDE, Budgie and KDE Plasma tests this week, many expressed frustration over the heavy KDE packaging on Ubuntu leading to the inflated results for the Plasma 5 desktop tests. For some additional reference, here is how KDE Plasma (and GNOME Shell) compare when running on Ubuntu 17.04 vs. openSUSE Tumbleweed...

    seems a bit strange these results as i col boot into my kde desktop within a few seconds.

Well, next time you need a PIM or a metadata indexed filesystem on your reduced environment, you could always... dunno, drag your panel around the screen... maybe it will serve some purpose.



    What's missing then? The article says

    which implies a lot of things are missing, but the forum thread is 13 pages...
    Nothing's missing. It's just that when installing KDE on Ubuntu, a lot of Ubuntu's built-in services are not deactivated. Martin Graesslin posted about this in the other thread.
    And the problems go far beyond this. I tried to install KDE on Ubuntu and a couple of weeks later I ended up installing Kubuntu from scratch because of various problems (wrong colours, missing icons and such).
    I think Neon did a great thing showing the world how KDE actually works when properly updated and packaged. Before Neon, it was rather hard to know which problems we could blame on KDE and which were on packagers.

    It would be interesting to see how KDE-Neon fares against these two.

    Please show some respect for the Gnome community and stop trolling, you a disservice to the responsible gnome community.

    Michael, please test KDE Neon, stable branch. It is the most stable implementation of KDE Plasma by the folks who developed it. Even on a live DVD it is fast. Also, for a general implementation, please test KDE Plasma as implemented by Manjaro. KDE is not the old KDE. And as I have said, the old Akonadi based PIM will soon go away. The new PIM is called KUBE. It has elimated over 75 dependices sp. Everything is being rewritten, not just updated. A discussion by one of the developers can be found on Planet KDE.

    And thank you again, Michael, for this great site. It is so kool to see your work cited in more and more other sites.
    kde neon is a debian distro with ancient repositories

    I get the same memory results on 3 physical machines with Kubuntu 17.04.
    Yeah, well, if they have different amount of RAM it's safe to say my speculation is not valid.

    Plus I guess they don't realise their general stupidity of their comments. If a product/framework makes development harder, then surely that is a refection on the the framework's poor quality? Lol.

    Luckily Wayland can solve this. Not because it is magic code, it just makes desktop development outside GNOME much more demanding.
