Of course, we all love this distro and say nothing but good things, but we don’t really discuss what we feel needs improvement. I am curious what others have to say. I’ll go first.
I always appreciate when an OS ships with very high quality, thoughtful wallpapers, and I must say I am really not a fan of the default wallpaper the OS ships with. It gives the distro a very cheap, low budget feel for a first impression. Hope to see that change with a future release.
Nothing really, the only thing I remove from the default install is the update notifer. One option I would like to see even if its only added to the list of other programs you see in the welcome app after an install is this https://archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/kdeplasma-addons/ but at the same time it only takes me a few extra seconds to add it myself
It may looks silly but Logo can be used as branding. Branding draws people. The “Purple” draws people. If not logo then it can be something else, anything as long developer willing to involved the community, even if it’s just a little bit, like picking next ISO default Wallpapers.
I could see two ways to improve the distribution, and while both are tied to my use case both might be interesting for similar users:
When installed on BTRFS file systems offer a support package, consisting of for instance btrfs-assistent, timeshift, timeshift-autosnap and the likes
The update checker should be configured with different default, I think currently it yaps about every possible update to even a single package, while maybe “Updates are at least a day old” or “At least 50 packages need updates” seem a better default to me
We are always open to help from the community, as for the wallpaper design that is discussed over here, I did post a request over here. It brought us one reaction, so it isn’t as easy as it may sound to attract people for the job.
A little footnote, our Atlantis, Apollo, Artemis, and Cassini releases were designed by a professional designer.
I like it the way it is–a bit sparse. A fresh EOS install is a clean slate I can clutter up to my liking. As far as the wallpaper, there’s an endless supply of free, down-loadable wallpapers available to suit any taste. You’re never going to 100% please everyone. If I get a vote, I say leave it alone.
