KDE is

… getting a rather GNOME-like makeover. A new overview screen will offer a full-screen view of both virtual desktops and all currently open applications. Along with these two features, a search bar will be included with the overview that allows users to find applications, files, browser tabs, documents, and more.

Although this might require longtime users to have to adjust their workflows, if the implementation is as successful as what GNOME did with version 40, most will be quite happy with how efficient it is.

I guess whoever asked for this may be happy :thinking:

This makes some sense, regardless of replicating Gnome. It makes the Activities feature more visible and usable. As long as KDE are adding features, and not removing them, I don’t mind a bit of Gnome in my KDE stew.

If it 's just limited to Activities then they can do whatever they want to. I’ve never used Activities in KDE (4 or 5) and I don’t ever intend to. As far as the rest of my KDE garden goes, I would rather not have gnomes in it. :wink:

Well the difference seems to be that KDE adds features, while Gnome removes them.

To me, the adding features (which can be disabled by users) is more ‘freedom’. Gnome devs seem to suffer from tunnel vision in making it all uniform and removing choice.

In which case I choose choice every time. Yes it can be bewildering but it’s up to the individual to deal with this. I don’t need a holding/controlling hand. I choose freedom, and if I make mistakes then I will deal with them.

KDE extensions next? :grin:

Eek! Now let’s look at this: Gnome needed extensions. KDE however is so full of stuff that an extension would be like overpopulating a planet! Oh wait, that sounds rather like humanity! (I am so confused!) :wink: :crazy_face: :laughing:
