    Nice to hear they scored some funding. Bcachefs might be a nice alternative to btrfs once it is mature and feature complete.

      Seems like scrubbing is not completely implemented, but it is on their immediate roadmap
      Any URL giving details available?

        You don't need to wait for btrfs to be mature and feature complete to use bcachefs as an alternative.

          I don't have to, because it already is. But I have to wait for bcachefs is mature and feature complete.

The kernel's funding is there, it's plentiful and it's important, but to get a good UI, you need to directly fund the UI, not hope that it will somehow magically appear out of thin air.
            Couldn't agree more, this kind of mentality is really misguided

              Is it really that hard to look for yourself?

                Plasma 6 is lightyears ahead of something like windows. Only mac might still be more consistent in UI look. And both of them also have issues.

                So what are we really comparing to when saying failed? IMO almost every Linux desktop is better than the proprietary competition because they lack customization, so they failed from the get-go. Imagine how much easier and more bug free gnome 3 would have been if they never introduced a extension interface.

                  I agree with Gnome and KDE having issues, like Gnome having no systray and KDE full of bugs in rolling distros (possibly ok in LTS distros, don't know).

                  Now, what's a "good UI" (speaking of desktop)? Gnome keeps reinventing things. Does this make it better? Like "let's replace systray with ... " (I don't know, I still don't get it how you can replace system-tray with notifications... like, instead of an "on" icon, you constantly get reminders "app is still running"?). KDE tries to be as flashy as possible at the cost of stability - is this good or bad?

                  I'd say "let the users decide what they like". Which makes the "plethora of me-too desktops and yet-another tiling compositor" a *good* thing. I can pick whatever I personally like best. I'd rather have 5 "me-too desktops" to chose from instead of letting almighty Gnome decide what changes to force on me.

                  When a DE goes further than just "show windows, help the user organize them on screen", the extra stuff is nice for some and unusable for others. Gnome had a pretty good formula (except the "registry" settings), then they started "making it a better UI" and people fled to one of the many gnome2 clones.

                    I'll be honest, I didn't know the name of the thing off the top of my head, but looked it up. I didn't realize they redeveloped it, but after reading this I looked it up again and dug in a bit. I've never been to England so have of course never seen in person. But if I make it some day, I'll have to have a look!
