          Overall I like the new changes. I use wayland since I have a laptop and also my main PC is full AMD.

          It just werks. This laptop hasn't been updated in like 4 months and im on mainline arch. I booted it up just to post this thread tbh famalam.

        How does it behave if you try using it fast? Like opening a bunch of programs at the same time, spamming start menu to open/close repeatedly, interacting with a lot of in program context menus while alt tabbing and shit like that? every time i try using plasma i get disappointed by how fast it starts falling apart, hopefully plasma vi got it figured out by now.

        It looks exactly how you program it to look. Maybe you're just tasteless and shit at creating pleasing UI. No worries, pajeets on KDE will do it for you.

    Yes I did, and came back to 5 because 6 is shit. Wayland isn't ready on Nvidia and Xorg animations became slow/laggy and Plasma stuff has visual bugs now (still on Xorg). 5 on Xorg was perfect.

        Games still have worse performance, steam is glitchy and Plasma has more bugs. They also changed a lot of stuff to the worse.

      that's essentially updating the whole operating system and programs, it's only going up 500MB in actual size, so the installed system is probably still under 10GB
      arch updates very frequently, debian based systems would almost never have updates that large unless you wait a year between updates

    So any features so I can just switch between window in different virtual desktops with only one click yet? Also auto tile feature?

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      you can set the task manager and the alt+tab window switcher to show windows from all desktops but it'd cost you the organizational benefit to having virtual desktops to begin with. _Not_ showing stuff you're not working on is it's main value. In case you're a zoomer or non-native English speaker picrel is what a desk used to mean. Having virtual desktops is like having different desks or tables to focus on different tasks. You could do soldering on one table which also hosts your tin and iron, do writing and research on another, yet another for calling and communicating and maybe another for use in spare time (a couch and living room table simply being yet another desk more optimized for passively wasting time)

      slackware is GNU/Linux for windows users.

      think about it:
      - you have to install every program, besides the most basic ones, from some homepage after you downloaded it individually
      - installing things takes time and often will break your system
      - upgrading to new versions successfully relies on 99% sheer luck
      - slackware had its naming scheme altered by skipping from slackware 4 to slackware 7. like windows did multiple times as well, changing from version to year-based release names to simple names to version names again.
      - slackware still retains the same basic functions without any real innovation like windows does since 1.0. all they add is some more blingbling in the DE.
      - slackware users are uncaring, egoistic children that think they are being clever for using a cumbersome operating system for a mundane reason. in windows, that is "GAEMS!!!!", in slackware "NO DEPENDENCY MANAGEMENT MEANS FREEDOM!!!"
      - they both have their own operating system cult leaders. bill gates vs that volkerding guy
      - slackware and windows both dont care about support for architectures other than x86. only lately, after lots of nagging and threats, they have released a half-assed 64-bit version that breaks constantly. ARM, PPC, they all will never see any slackware or windows on them.

      SLACKWARE = GNU/WINDOWS

    For everyday tasks is ok.
    But when launching games mangohud reports 10C more than Sway, so I'm staying in Sway.

    And to be fair, Gnome added 10C more too.

    Perhaps Linux 6.8 can help to keep my temps low. Will have to wait and see.

    I did it on day one, except I use KDE Neon.
    I can't say it was completely painless tho. Some x86 packages prevented the upgrade of some packages and KDE Discover didn't warn me about it, instead it just proceeded with upgrade so I ended with a broken desktop.
    Took me a moment to repair it.
    In general I suggest you to wait for 6.1, there are still some minor incompatibilities with some applications.
