GNOME

Now that the dust has settled, can the remaining clowns stop pretending GNOME devs didn't have the best intentions all this time? They don't want GNOME to be a failure, they want it to be a success more than anyone. They don't want it to get lost in bloat or choosing the wrong path. Give them a break.

    Gnome just werks.

    KDE is crashware. The bad alignment of UI elements is also a form of torture.

          Let me guess, you are not even running gnome so it can't crash. :^)

            No I actually do. I have a non-unlockable safe boot which means I can only run mswindows, fedora or ubuntu. both come with gnome as default and I am too lazy to change it because it just works

            Really now? GNOME 3 was more stable than 4 for you? When I used 3 it was so bad that I actually went through effort to install something else

            yeah, it crashes pretty much once a day with default debian setup.
            I didn't bother to try to tweak it because all the tweaks are broken.

            Why the hell are you choosing gnome on arch?

            It just works (for me). No tweaking necessary beside "dash to dock" and "kstatus notifier" (for tray icons).
            What do you use?

            I use xfce personally, but I'm just surprised to hear of an arch user using gnome since I'd figure you'd go for something more minimalist. I dont often hear of arch users running gnome maybe I'm out of the loop though

            >dock
            You are unironically using Gnome wrong. I used to install both the kstatus thing and a dock. Then I forced myself to use default Gnome. After a while I realized how dumb I was. Why do you need a dock? To switch between applications or open minimized applications. How do this the Gnome way? Open applications on your desktop. Desktop filled? Move to the next dynamically allocated desktop. If you use the overview consistently it will help a lot initially.

            >Kstatus
            Similar as for the dock. Applications should never disappear. They just stay open. When you close them they are closed. That's why Gnome has the "running I the background" indicator.

          Worse, it wouldn't allow me to unlock the computer on the lock screen.

      Gnome only crashes if I power on my wireless mouse during the one second window were the pop-in animation happens after logging in and before the desktop is active.
      It never crashes from anything else, ever.

    KDE seems me very heterogeneous. This interface is ugly and has small differences everywhere. It drives me mad. Also KrashDE is a shitty windows clone. Gnome is unbearably unusable and is a gayos clone. So i use mate.

      The problem with KDE is the lack of a unified design language. Every app has a different language, or they are plainly ugly like an early 2000s app.

      >Gnome is a macos clone
      Do people who say this ever use Macos or Gnome? I have to work with a MacBook and use Gnome at home and they are nothing alike at all. If Gnome is used as it was intended (virtual desktops, never minimizing) it is by far the most productive paradigm simply because it reduces the cognitive overhead like no other DE does. Also Gnomes overview is so ridiculously superior to Macos implementation it genuinely makes you think if anything Macos stole that from Gnome.

      The most successful gaming platform chose KDE for their device that sold millions of units. Why didn't they go with 'le just works Gnome? Really makes you think.

      You said it yourself. Gaming units. These are for people who are used to Windows are not technically illiterate but aren't programmers either. And since KDE actually resembles Windows in a lot of ways (contrary to Gnome which is so dissimilar to Macos its unreal) it is the perfect choice. Also Gnome is backed by Redhat which is a commercial company while KDE is entirely FOSS by a German nonprofit. That's a very important point for a commercial company like Valve.

    KDE is nice enough if you ignore the fact that the UI is horribly inconsistent and poorly aligned. Even themed Xfce/MATE looks better because the UI is actually consistent enough to be themed. KDE has more customisability but the UI is so broken that literally every theme looks like shit.

    You only need normal desktop like Cinnamon, anything other is redundant, bloat, troon flex shit (like WMs) or hipster garbage (like Gnome)
