    Phoronix: KDE Plasma Mobile Is Beginning To Look Surprisingly Good

    The KDE Plasma Mobile team has begun publishing weekly reports on their development efforts for making KDE software more suitable for mobile devices as well as convergence and other efforts in common with KDE on the desktop...

    I can't actually say why, but I find everything KDE-related awful.
    One element could be the font choice I guess, but also the squarish look.

    Sorry KDE people

      Typo?

        Are you saying that from looking just at the screenshot? If so, then you are wrong.
        KDE has used rounded rectangles in several places, plus it is customizable if you don't like the default look.

          There can't be just icons without this grey background?

            Second that. But mainly for their asinine behavior of naming more or less every application as K-something or some other useless name.
            Branding that sticks really isn't their forte. They should hire somebody to spruce up the fascia.

              I use KDE on my laptop, and looking through the mobile screenshot I found them ugly and pretty at the same time.

              Ugly when looking to it using a Android mindset
              Pretty when looking to it as KDE user

                One thing I find striking in those screenshots is that the scale and padding of some elements is really strange. e.g. in the Kirigami sidebar, the bottom buttons, and a bunch of UI elements in general.
                I assume this is something they're going to fix, though.

                  I understand you, I have the same feeling about most Gnome stuff. It's just a matter of taste though. I thing both are quite customizable you could just choose different icons and stuff.

                    The ruining of Gnome as a desktop environment pays off when you use it on a convertible laptop. I was surprised when I took a machine to mess with and found out that on a touch interface, Gnome was miles ahead of KDE.

                    Good to know that KDE folks they are now taking care of it the right way, i. e., without destroying desktop functionality.
