    Phoronix: KDE System Settings UI Is Still Getting Overhauled

    The GNOME Control Center was revamped this summer and even the Haiku settings area while KDE developers are also working on overhauling their System Settings user-interface...

        The current one was already quite good in my opinion and being able to search by name was awesome. There are other areas which need much more effort than this.
        ## VGA ##
        AMD: X1950XTX, HD3870, HD5870
        Intel: GMA45, HD3000 (Core i5 2500K)

          And you thought about posting this less than a week after Michael actually tested various DE and found no significant differences. Smart.

            I don't get the obsession with vertical tabs. They are a total UX nightmare. That's just not how the human eye scans interfaces.

              Looks good so far, but are they switching to CSD?

                This looks much better than the first draft of the new design.

                  not exactly. he found that kde in ubuntu+kde is bloated and that kde in opensuse tumbleweed is lightweight. In comparison even gnome could be called bloated on tumbleweed. But as long as a DE does not need much more than 1GB RAM I am fine, as long as it does something useful with it.
                  On machines with 4GB RAM or less this is of course a different story.

                    KDE is borked (not bloated) in Ubuntu. Kubuntu is ok, I use it all the time.
