KDE is turning 25 years old soon. What is one thing you appreciate about KDE? Tell us in the comments!

@kde The way when I right click on a desktop item, the context menu appears on the wrong monitor, the one to the left of me. :blobthumbsup:

@kde #KDE allows everyone to tailor and make the desktop experience their own, without coming in the way.

@kde It does what it's supposed to do, and not much more. That's what I like.
Some annoying bugs sometimes, but nobody's perfect.

@kde it's been nice to see KDE grow but remain relatively consistent over the 17 years i've dabbled with it. cool that it was accessible enough for a (weird) kid to use

@kde the amount of stuff you can customize no activation required

@kde its Kool

For real though i love the customization so much.

@kde One thing that I appreciate in KDE is full support for USBGuard

@kde -
I first tried KDE 3.0 in 2003. Although, I mainly use i3 nowadays, anytime I tried KDE (no matter of version), I was always fascinated by its consistency and gradual improvements without ruining the user experience.
Though I must say (KDE Plasma) being so tangled up with Wayland is something that I really do not appreciate.
It removes the portability to OSes without Wayland support like OpenBSD.

@kde
Respect for my privacy, a matter of increasing importance, year by year.

Also: so much user choice!

@kde community, features and respect for the users

@kde I love KDE because it doesn't try to gloss over the features and hide away anything that doesn't fit the pattern that one group thinks is the One True Path. I like that I can make it work the way I work.

@kde
It never disappointed me but surprised me often.

@kde KDE lets me have custom mappings for the keyboard and lazy focus for windows while the user interface still works properly. 💓

@kde I really appreciate kdenlive! We made our whole film and trailer in it and are planning to use the latest version for our next film.

@kde I really love this effort for making such a great desktop and user experience! Keep it going! I love it :)

@kde i like that it's windows-y enough that my parents were able to start using it with little to no learning curve

@agafnd @kde thank Microsoft. They've been getting KDE'ish in the looks department. Imo.

@jawsh
ms has gotten to look more like kde than the other way around for sure.
"look" not behave like! :-) Thank goodness!
@agafnd @kde

@kde I appreciate the flexibility you give me to set up my devices the way I want rather than dictating how I should use them.

@kde What @artfulsodger said: configurability! Any person doesn't like something, I can change it to suit them - or me, naturally :-)
I like so many things about kde that it would take a book really. I've been using kde since it was introduced as Kool DE, yeah, that long ago :-)

@kde
It's similar enough to Windows that I was able to get my mom to use it

@kde
The ability to control almost anything through the commandline

@kde
KDE connect, Kate and Dolphin. They are jewels of FLOSS.

@kde

The overall level of polish and the high degree of customization the DE allows for.
