Seriously why is GNOME such dogshit DE? It's like the devs behind it are doing an experiment on how to make a DE shit enough for people to use it without uninstalling it.

    Because all Plasma does is the YandereDev "low hanging fruits". Flashy features are fun to make, easy to advertise and bring good PR.
    GNOME is about Stability. It's fine ripping out feature if it gets in the way of maintaining Stability. That's why all the distributors touting Stability for enterprise use GNOME. Ubuntu? RHEL? SLED? Solaris? The thread binding them is GNOME.

        don't speak imprecisely. KDE is insanely bloated- but you really want to say that KDE's plasma DE is less bloated than GNOME which is more reasonable
        KDE-full and all of the KDE-applications that it includes is a ridiculous mess. and for what? to give you 3 different editors for each type of file, 3 web browsers, a bunch of pointless games, a program where you "learn pronunciation by listening to native speakers"?
        I don't hate KDE but it just seems like they waste their time on weird and unnecessary shit. nobody is using their computer with the premise that they can only use the pre-installed packages

          except that most maintainers of the KDE Gear are not the same as the Plasma desktop. Criticising them is like criticising Gnome solely due to the effort employed in the Gnome Circle apps.

          Even with the seemingly lack of focus KDE managed to get the Plasma desktop to be about as stable as Gnome and with much more modern and useful features and optional customization.

          I'd rather they spend time implementing and refining features that users request than debating wether or not they should consider them. Much like the customer, the user is always right.

          In a way it is. I don't know how GNOME thought that poorly written C mixed with Javascript was a good idea for making a desktop. The only issue with KDE is that the project is spread a lot thinner. While it doesn't have to worry about developing a toolkit, they have a lot of random ass projects. They will gladly add features but will only have a few people fixing bugs.

        they (view modes) all do. It's especially egregious when you navigate up from a directory and your view suddenly jumps to a random place. This is a basic feature from a GUI and UX standpoint. It should be threated as a high priority on any operating system or DE, yet Gnome treats it as a minor nuissance.

      Wrong. They use GNOME because they are GNOME developers. They know how to work with GTK and GNOME. They don't have anyone that knows how to work with Qt and KDE.

      It's not about stability, it's about developer resources and they don't want to re-train and re-hire developers. Meanwhile, you have companies like Valve and Mercedes that are more than happy to work with KDE and Qt.

    I've been daily driving GNOME since February. I've been running forge because I love tiling, but that thing is fricking buggy: on my floating screens I can't resize windows sometimes. The file browser is ass (poor features, still beats Finder on mac tho), the settings are as dogshit as XFCE and KDE.

    I don't know what to use... I already made an xmonad setup for my old laptop. 4 years later I got mac. I don't want to go over the same process for my desktop. I didn't hate XFCE all that much, but I also don't like the fact that it's ugly out the box.

          I use GNOME on my main desktop and honestly I wish it was half as useful as finder. Maybe it's because I don't use sftp myself but frick, to me Files seems to be getting just a few bits and pieces of Finder (like preview, setting folders not to be at the top of the list or extracting zip files by double clicking on em) but there's no vertical panel view or whatever the frick it's called, there's no file tagging support, search is still primitive even after they updated it with global search (which is nice, don't get me wrong), you don't have much customization in the way of what you can do at all with the context menus, and you can't easily set up what I call automated folders. There's a lot of shit missing there. It's integrated with GNOME indeed, in fact everything else seems out of place, but stuff like disabling even on x11 the ability to drag and drop files from fileroller for instance is just wild. It just doesn't have that many features. Shit I think Thunar has been a bit more useful. Granted these days I got used to Files and I don't think there's any good reason for me to switch.

            Nautilus is by far the worst file manager/explore available for any major desktop environment or operating system. Much like you said, not supporting drag and drop from Gnome's own archival utility is asinine. Thunar is a far better option, in my opinion, too.

            I should be able to use KDE APIs in PyQt or PySide applications but as far as I know there's no way. I've seen so many Qt applications written in Python with shit colourscheme ls that could benefit from things like KColorScheme (to be fair this is Qt's fault and they're fixing it a bit but KDE already has decent API for this you just can't use it from Python)

      >there's 10 krashes
      10 krashes that were fixed just as they released the feature. I fail to see your point. I'd rather have a feature then a bug, then a feature and a fixed bug than no feature and no bugs.

    Linux is at its best while you're using it through the command line.
    Anything and everything desktop related is total absolute garbage.

    Funniest thing ever when GNOME fangays try saying GNOME devs focus on things like stability and user experience when there's no crash resilience and GNOME still lacks basic features like HDR support and high quality font rendering.
    Funniest part is that the current GNOME interface was designed around the whole convergence fad that Microsoft 8 was based on, making it shit for desktop users while also being terrible for laptops since the battery life is inferior to Windows and KDE as well.

    Ok, answer me this IQfy what features were removed from Nautilus recently? I ask because I think OP is lying.
    Yes, they removed a lot from it in past years, but in the most recent Gnome version they are actually adding features.

    My two most important feature requests for KDE:
    1. Preview for dolphin (like gnome sushi)
    2. Native frosted glass theme so that we can finally drop kvantum.
