      It followed the older tradition of X programs having an x in front of their name, like xterm, xcalc, xbiff, xedit, xlogo, etc.

      Besides, it's not like this sort of things didn't happen with other DEs.

      GNOME: Gnote, gThumb, GDM, gedit, etc.
      Enlightenment: Elive, Entrance, ePhoto, etc.
      LXDE: LXAppearance, LXDM, etc.

      Just to name a few examples.

      Apple started doing the same with the prefix ā€œiā€.

        The word "hire" was metaphiric. I meant to find volunteers. Or maybe just re purpose existing volunteers. Basically, give these UI touches higher priority.

          I'm sorry but looks / feel are important. This is the primary issue with a lot of Linux veterans, we're so used to the command line and code side that we forget the importance of the UI/UX side. It IS important.

            I think the message was "stop complaining and start contributing".

              That said, am I the only one that finds the Breeze icons (the black and white flat icons in KDE and Libreoffice, and now in the Plasma Mobile) both ugly and unusable? Fortunately, they are easily changed to Oxygen.

                As for the last post, blur on the background was modern circa 2014. It's not modern now.
                Defaults do matter. They're what someone who's new to a desktop and isn't aware of if a setting exists or not is going to use.

                  GNOME renamed their app names but just kept those as their project names. Gedit shows up as Text Editor.

                    Oh yes, I remember trying to find the solution to a problem with a gnome application by searching online.
                    It's very user friendly to call your mail application mail but good luck finding a tutorial about advanced features online - oh now I understand why they remove those

                      Branding that sticks really isn't their forte. They should hire somebody to spruce up the fascia.
                      They don't actually encourage that anymore. I don't know if you've noticed but alot of KDE applications are not named after KDE... Elsa, Clazy, Heaptrack, Cervisa, Umbrello, Blinken, GCompris, Marble, Rocs, Falkon, Minuet, Dolphin, Step, etc.
