• KDE 5.13 Update - So Far, So Good...


    I’m not trying to jinx anything, but so far KDE 5.13 is working beautifully on my laptop. I will admit I was surprised to see it roll out so fast from the announcement yesterday, but I’m very happy it is working so well. I don’t know if I’m using fewer resources, but it’s so incredibly low to begin with I’m just happy it didn’t go up! Everything seems to be nice a fast, and I’m not seeing anything unusual. Great job to all!

  • So far so good too!

  • think i might jump from Gnome and give it a shot.

    havent tried KDE in years.

  • I’m also interested on testing KDE again after all last positive reviews about it.

  • @adam-worth to be honest I didn’t notice any difference in stability or performance.
    For me it was pretty stable and performing with the 5.12 release too.

  • @sonnet
    In a way, that’s a good thing, right? 😉
    But I know what you mean, I didn’t notice a big difference either.

  • The settings seem to be more intuitive and it is also pretty light on resources - comparable to some of the so-called lightweight DEs. Much lighter than gnome.

  • @bryanpwo I certainly meant it in a good way. KDE become so good and stable that I hope the next major release (6.x.x) will arrive as late as possible.

    I know. I’m just happy there wasn’t a lot of stuff breaking, crashing, bloating, etc. The most important things for me are:

    • Stability
    • Runs Software without problems
    • Low resources
    • Free is good. ;-)

    I’m very grateful to the open source community. When you can find what you need and want, that’s golden.
