I wish Microsoft could learn something from them about UI design.

 

I'd have to respectfully disagree there.

I think it's look pretty awesome.  Not a big fan of the "mixed" UI of Windows 8/8.1.  I haven't tried 10 yet.

A Linux-based desktop environment has a 'hit of Linux'. You don't say. post-1302-0-96562400-1425826330.gif

A desktop environment has a hint of a kernel? Well, I'll award you 3 warwagons for that joke for making minimal sense.

Not to mention you get KDE for windows, so your comment makes even less sense than if you meant to put GNU/Linux.

Well the element OS is trying get away from the Linux Look and more to the Mac OS look.

yep and seems to lack about 100 options. for me it feels simply too castrated. btw. you can create that mac os look in kubuntu as well.

I agree, it's a tad too flat and bland.

Still better than the Windows 10 leaks.

Quite frankly, just about anything is better than that.

Could it be because KDE's design default looks so much like Windows 7 that it could almost be a clone?

 

Let's be honest, folks - other than wallpaper and icons, KDE 4.x could be a Windows 7 clone.  (Other than sheer minimalist fanatics, KDE is, after all, a favorite among Linux desktop users - including me.)

 

How much did Plasma 5 move from 4?

 

Even the default wallpaper didn't change THAT much.

 

KaOS now includes Plasma 5 as the default (replacing Plasma 4).

 

Now that I have enough HDD space, I'll be adding KaOS to my Linux VM library (Server 2012R2-based VM lab).

Really no. honestly, I've gotten myself stuck on windows because everything I do now, is on windows. If I could learn to break free.....

 

Linux uses its own libraries and filesystem I know. the look is different. the interaction is different.

The next release, which is plasma 5.3 already, could see new window decorations:

 

 

Decorations We may be looking forward to a new alternate decoration; originally based on Breeze and the result of a first-time hack gone too far,

by default you can move the cashew into all corners of your screen and also in the middle on the upside.

this widget removes the cashew completely so in that aspect everything will be clean
