Yeah, that's some pretty modified KDE

Not really. All you need is a MacOS QT theme for the title bars (can download and install directly from OS with the theme settings), install latte dock, and hide or remove the plasma application launcher and bar. Would take about 20 minutes if you were causally doing it. 

Gives a nice clean look.

Correct. Nowhere did I say it was simple. Refer back to that thread. I was referring to you with it taking 20 minutes because I thought you were familiar with GNU/Linux. My bad.

I am fluent in Linux, but I never used KDE. I never really liked it. I'm more of a XFCE/MATE guy...

Thanks lol. I'm running glava, that's the sound visualizer you see at the bottom. I had my config messed up, that's why it isn't on the whole screen. It's really cool, https://www.linuxuprising.com/2018/11/embed-audio-visualizer-on-your-linux.html

 

 

KDE is can be pretty bloated, but I need something that I could adjust to everyday. I'm going to check out some of the others, but just wanted something that I could use quick. I've used Linux off and on for the last 20 years it seems. I've tried switching full time, but ended up going back to windows. This time, I'm more serious about it since gaming has come a long way. I actually don't have a Windows partition/drive anymore. I've been Windows free for over a week and haven't looked back.

Recently moved away from Mint, and went with ArcoLinux, based off Arch. Has a simple installer, too. :)

I haven't played with Linux since about 2011 or 12. Got a Raspberry Pi 4 to play around with, and decided to do something different with it, minimal raspbian install and building pretty much everything from scratch with a tiling window manager, which I've never done before. I forgot what a weird mix of fun and frustration tweaking everything is. I now have a very barebones setup, so I plan on using it for some coding projects, and I'll try not do jump to another distro every other week, like I used to before.

      Canalys: Global PC market saw 25% YoY growth in 4Q20
      by Paul Hill



      The analyst firm Canalys has reported that the global PC market saw 25% year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2020. The firm classifies the PC market as desktops, notebooks (including Chromebooks) and workstations but excludes tablets which are sometimes used by some in place of a full-blown PC. Total PC shipments in 2020 grew by 11% reaching 297 million units.

      The full-year growth in the PC market is the highest that’s been seen since 2020 and the number of units shipped is the highest seen since 2014. The growth in 2020 was driven by laptops and mobile workstations; they saw a growth rate of 44% compared to 2019. Desktops, on the other hand, were less successful with shipments falling 20% compared to 2019; there were 61.9 million shipments in this segment of the market in 2020.

      In the fourth quarter, the biggest PC vendor was Lenovo which shipped 23.1 million units, in second place was HP which shipped 19.1 million units. Dell came in third place shipping more than 15 million units for the first time ever, Apple was in fourth place shipping 7.1 million units and Acer came fifth with 6.1 million units shipped. Other companies shipped a combined 18.9 million units in the fourth quarter.

      According to Canalys Research Director Rushabh Doshi, PCs have been at the centre of the digital transformation that the world has gone through in the past year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Doshi said that going forward it’s going to be “extremely difficult” to write off PCs and that it’s likely that they’re here to stay.
