Yes, it was a refreshing experience. It boots a couple of seconds slower than I'm used to, but it's snappy and fast under use. Very polished and pleasing to look at. I expected it to be quite buggy, as I've heard that KDE tends to be that. But nope, no issues yet. If I had to choose a DE, KDE Plasma Desktop is definitely up there. Much much better than Gnome, and I also like it better than XFCE4. The only contender for me, is LXQT, which I have fallen in love with the last week.

Yes, LXQt, can also be used as a "light-weight" KDE. I'm partial to Xfce as well.

My top three (sorry if we usurped this thread temporarily), in nor particular order:
Fluxbox
Xfce
KDE

PS: You can use Kwin with LXQt if you so desire, adds a little weight, but still much lighter then full KDE.

Will have to look into that. I also like Fluxbox, even though Openbox is my favorite. Perhaps because I know every inch of it. JWM is fine too. All those WM's gives you an awesome workflow, and are very efficient. So for production purposes, they are awesome. But it can become a bit boring to fiddle with them in the long run, because you pretty much end up with the same setup no matter what. DE's like KDE and LXQT forces me to be creative, and do things a little different. It's fun to fiddle with something else now and then.

XFCE was up there with me too, until I got pissed by the fact that I couldn't get all of my custom keyboard shortcuts to stick trough reboots. Some of them did, and others didn't. Perhaps a little issue for most people, but to me, it's enough to put me off.

I didn't install all of gnome, but like the browser
epiphany
and also installed gedit. Still working on it, but so far seems to be working ok.

PCBSD 10.3 installed on a Dell E5240 i5.

I'm *reinstalling* KDE from within a fluxbox session after a little slip whilst trying to get my head around AppCafe. :oops:

That is pretty nice, but what if one wants a different DE, or WM , IE: openbox, and no XFCE ?
Never mind, I looked at the website, openbox is available in the packages.

The distribution is intended for use on servers & firewalls rather than for general desktop use and it is designed to be as slim and lightweight as possible.

As a result, the standard installation is CLI-only and requires some work to get to a usable desktop.

Mine is now working great, it runs very fast with almost no processor overhead and even plays HD videos from YouTube :)
