Uh, where should I start? It's been over a week since I jumped to KDE Neon 5.27 (based on Ubuntu 22.04) from Ubuntu 22.10.
Here are my thoughts on using it (or at least the Plasma DE):
What I liked:
- The splash screen at the start.
- The built in widgets.
- The interface is polished (like most distros).
- Some apps like Steam open faster.
- KDE's System Monitor is more user-friendly than GNOME's.
What I disliked:
- Wine was slightly harder to install (you would have to downgrade the
secdrv.sysdoesn't seem to work (though, that's probably a WINE 8.0 issue).
- One click on a file or folder in the file manager opens it (I'm used to double click) and I'm not sure there's a way to configure that.
- If you move a image set as the desktop background, next time you login, it doesn't show the background.
- The setting to change the desktop (background, etc.) is not found in the settings. Instead, you would need to right click on the desktop to access it.
- You would need to restart the computer to apply updates (similar to Fedora).
There are some things (in my opinion) that KDE does better than GNOME (no offence), which is why I'm staying on KDE Neon for now.
There, I'm done. I hope I don't get the look (not for distro jumping BTW). Oh, and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong on any of these points.
