I started using Plasma 5 a smidge before devs were saying it was ready for primetime. That was my conversion from Gnome (which I was very happy to leave by then) and it's been nothing but positive.

I will wait for the full release of Plasma 6, but I'm super excited for it. I still <3 Plasma 5.

Thank you KDE devs!

What Plasma 6 feature are you most excited for?

Not OP but I’m looking forward to a really insignificant bug fix. When I open a context menu on my second monitor that uses a different scaling it flickers and the background drops out. It’s just visual and I almost never use that context menu but knowing it’s there bothers me. Per the bug report I filed it was planned to be resolved with the other Wayland fixes in v6.

Nothing specific. When I first jumped from gnome I spent probably more than a year going "damn that was thoughtful" or "wow, that's super convenient" as I discovered different features. As I said, I was an earlyish adopter of Plasma 5, and it was enjoyable just to watch it take shape.

I like what the KDE team does, and I like seeing Plasma continue to get better, so I'm just looking forward to a fresh new release, and discovering all the little niceties.

And bringing back the compiz style cube is pretty nice too. 😁
