Hard pill to swallow: Most of you hate Gnome because you want something like KDE or a tiling window manager so you can tinker and customize it 24/7 and then spam your neofetch screenshot all over the internet, instead of using your computer to do actual work.
But please, tell me how buggy KDE 6 is better than Gnome because you can make your panel float or whatever.

        Some updates: the virtual keyboard doesn't work when you select any input boxes. The only context the keyboard shows is when you open the app search drawer.
        It doesn't even work in the login screen, so if you happens to be in tablet mode and want to enter your username and password, get fricked!
        This is the DE of the future, they said. It is optimized for touch screens, they said.

      There isn't any one thing that is truely awful about Gnome, its more like a death by a thousand paper cuts. Its so many small "why the frick does it work this way" or "why isn't this feature present???" issues that lead up to the dissatisfaction. You can easily live without a way for the GUI to create shortcuts/links, its not hard, but it its baffling why it isn't a feature.

        Yes. There are just so many small things wrong with it. Worst thing is that all the things fixing them is already developed but they just refuse to integrate them. I want to like gnome so much but it just sucks. Using kde is the only option if you want to have a modern fully featured DE.

    KDE is pretty comfy at near-stock settings. I think the only thing I do is get new icon set. Other than that, everything is basically default.

    I also like GNOME, and it has some nice design and features. But I like being able to navigate with mouse only, and GNOME is horrible, if you don't use keyboard all the time.

    KDE is just comfy windows-nostalgia for me, where you can lean back, use mouse only and just chill

    Cinnamon, Budgie and Unity are examples of the direction where the GNOME team could - and should - have taken things, but they didn't. They chose to revamp numerous aspects of the traditional desktop paradigm in favor of a UI and workflow that bears all the worst design elements of mobile operating systems, MacOS, and nuWinshit. Neo-GNOME is utterly abominable.

      splitting nautilus windows was one thing that bothered me before switching. I've been on Plasma 5 since it came out. I used to actually prefer Ubuntu's Unity and one thing that'd be even nicer than a global menubar would be menubars in the titlebars (which I had working in some specific W10-esque kwin+kvantum theme but it stopped working after an update).

    More like patch the functionality I need for a few minutes, backup to git and continue doing what I was doing. Maintaining a wm is not a full time thing, but saves you a lot of time in the long run since you can duplicate it on any machine in the future. Some big features might take a couple of hours to complete sure but that's rare, and it just means the codebase gets refactored to add more functionality in the future easily.

      Most problems I have with gnome would be fixed if they replaced nautilus with an updated thunar or pcmanfm and added native icon tray support. And also an option to keep the dock at the desktop (which I know isn't how guhnome is 'intended' to be used, but there is no harm in leaving it as an opt-in only option for those who want it).
      Only issue is I know none of this will ever get fixed because ebussi fails to see valid use cases for my complaints.

        Yes because KDE actually respects bug reporters even if most of them are unrelated to KDE itself or are duplicate reports or are for older versions, and always make an effort to fix them, which is what led to Krashes meme dying out.

    > tiling window manager
    Tbh gnome feels way more like tiling window manager compared to most DEs:
    >Minimalistic bar on the top, just like on your i3 or hyperland.
    All my dzen bar did was showing time and current workspaces, no tray or showing current apps. And guess what? Gnome's bar is doing the same
    >Background is just a picture, just like on any TWM
    >Workflow is keyboard driven and workspace focused, just like on TWMs
    >No "hide window" button, just like on TWMs

    Fr, gnome is just tiling wm without tiling, but with polished user friendly ui, mac os level of animations, gestures, etc. I realized I need tiling only for terminals (and browser sometimes), so I switched to termux and it's almost fine. Only morons who don't know anything except windows/kde whine about gnome, as well as suckless autists who can't buy more RAM.

    I like gnome because it's as minimal as tiling wm, but at same time it just werks, I don't need to spend days on setting up config and I can fap on touchpad gestures which feel better than on MacBooks

    And I would never use this ugly abomination called kde, it's literally made for morons who cannot change their thinking paradigm after being used to windows.

    Yes.
    >so you can tinker and customize it 24/7 and then spam your neofetch screenshot all over the internet
    No, I just like using the keyboard for everything, I don't like using the mouse a lot.

    I just think it's really dumb to use tablet UIs on the desktop. I don't even have touchscreen. I think Windows 8 was moronic too.

      All this shit should be on it by default. If you take your own setup for example, this should be the default. No one should be tweaking their DE to get the basic functionality out of it.
      I'm on gnome too.

        I hate typing to open a program
        on gnome super + 1 open the first app in dock
        super + 2 the second one
        so you just class your programs in the dock with the priority you want
        in my case sup1 is terminal, sup2 is files, sup3 is browser etc
        I prefer this over typing (also available on gnome by pressing super and typing) and over an actual menu with apps by categories for example

    >That screen resolution
    >Those gaps
    Bro, please tell me how to auto start applications on specific monitors / workspaces / whatever especially if you have duplicate instances of those applications (e.g. I open up 4 versions of Firefox, but I want 3 on 1 monitor and 1 on another but on another workspace).
    Gnome can't do this shit. KDE can't do this shit. Only thing that can do this shit is <insert random tiling wm here> and they can barely do it.

    False. I use LXQt because I like many of the KDE apps but don't want the bloat of the rest of the desktop environment. I also unironically like Qt better than GTK

    I don't hate GNOME
    I hate Nautilus and I hate it not supporting all the new display features. The rest is fine to me. I'm actually waiting for 46, maybe I'll switch back, since they decided to officially support variable refresh rate. But the file manager sucks absolute dick.

    not being able to minimize is a non issue if you’ve spent any amount of time with a window manager like i3 or dwm.
    it’s the same workflow. you launch things with search and organize your windows using workspaces instead of a taskbar.
    people only hate gnome because it’s not like windows and they only prefer kde because it is a copy cat of windows.

      you can make it minimize/expand windows exactly like windows (the os) with dash-to-panel, you don't even need to customize it

    The problem is we're comparing gnome to a tiling wm but it doesn't have those qualities at all
    It fails at making the mouse user (the one that'd use a taskbar more often, the one that would want to minimize windows instead of switching workspaces, the one that would drag and drop files and images around) happy for sure, but it doesn't make a lot of sense to use it as a tiling window manager either. In the end both types of users would have to use extensions to make it usable.

    You fail to understand that GNOME is VERY keyboard centric, you can do ANYTHING with the keyboard. That's because GNOME devs are BASED and reject GUI.

      I agree but GNOME is more customizable than any DE out there.
      Try to write an add-on for Plasma for example that does this.

          Better than having to apply a patch and compile the DE from source all the time.
          Which is what GNOME extensions are only that they get applied dynamically.

    I don't even customize KDE plasma, it's mostly default and i use it because it's similar to Windows (7/10), you know that most popular system gnometards hate for some reason.
