KDE is turning 25 years old soon. What is one thing you appreciate about KDE? Tell us in the comments!
@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
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.
Respect for my privacy, a matter of increasing importance, year by year.
Also: so much user choice!
@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 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
@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.
