No. No it wasn’t. Openbox and it’s simple configs was and is the most comfy, basic window management system and building block for a user configured, traditional floating window desktop experience.

Honestly: It was probably the comfiest KDE desktop. I have found memories of KDE 3. I really liked it. Then the disaster that was KDE 4.0 came in 2008. I switched to XFCE and I've been using XFCE ever since. I know the latest KDE is better than the 4.0 disaster but it's still not nearly as comfy as KDE 3.
>>
>>65560329
It was really great. KDE really had lightning in a bottle at the time. I went to meet with the developers in Dublin at their Akademy conference in 2006 and was excited as hell to hear what they were working on next. Then Aaron Seigo started talking about Plasma and it was all downhill from there. RIP KDE3 gone but never forgotten.

KDE 2.0 was. KDE 3.0 was a bloated broken mess.
Gnome 3.0 was comfy too.

We should ditch clover OS and compile these desktops and distribute them as .deb packages. We could offer Devuan (Debian without systemd) with these installed.

Let's not forget that KDE was supposed to be...
>powerful Open Source graphical desktop environment for Unix workstations.

Loonix fags ruined KDE.

I reinstalled SUSE 9 in a VM the other month and was surprised at how snappy and functional everything felt. Modern Linux devs seem to have a screw loose as they keep pumping out shit.
>>
>>65563582
It's called "muh bloat", because developer times means more than user time. Who cares if the user has a shit experience.
>>
>>65563537
That theme just makes me feel so relaxed and at ease

Never forget, GNOME was a shitty hacky knock off of KDE due to autistic licensing faggotry.
>>
>>65563616
Gnome was made to utilize GTK in a desktop environment as an alternative to Qt.
>>
What is your honest opinion on Trinity DE? https://www.trinitydesktop.org/
Q4OS looks cool too.
>>
>>65563666
So pretty much what I said. Autistic licensing faggotry about Qt license lead to them making a shitty, hacky, knock off of KDE based on GTK garbage.

Retarded autistic neckbeards set back progress by literally decades.
>>
>>65563711
It was GTK and Qt not Gnome desktop environment itself.
So the right statement would be:
>Never forget, GTK was a shitty hacky knock off of Qt due to autistic licensing faggotry.

I hated KDE back then, I thought the interface was to Playschool-y. I much prefer the current iteration of Plasma.
>>
>>65563582
I find it funny now that the "light" XFCE feels heavier and has less features than Windows 7.

If they weren't all obviously such idiots I'd suspect sabotage.

If the taskbar wasn't so thick, yes.
>>
>>65563580
You obviously weren't there you retard.
UNIX workstations weren't competitive except in small niches, BSD had legal and funding problems, and Microsoft was steadily taking over everything.
If anything, Linux saved the Unix OS family from irrelevance.
>>
>>65563537
are there any color schemes like this for current KDE?

Kaffeine was comfy but even then SUSE haven't included basic codecs or make it easy to install them.

Lie. Aside 3D acceleration (S3 shit), everything worked. The printer needed some config, but that's all.
