Summary

There are two proposed justifications for this addition:

  • In general, VDG would like to move towards consistently using the Meta key for global shortcuts
  • Switching macOS users will be able to activate KRunner with the exact same keyboard shortcut they used to activate Spotlight

+1, but I'm curious what others have to say. I definitely agree that Meta should be for global shortcuts and global desktop shell related shortcuts in particular.

I agree with Meta instead of Alt for all "system shortcuts". Hence I would like to see this as well for all window manager operations. Meta => system, Ctrl, Alt => applications.

EDIT: Alt+Tab for window switcher is the exception.

Yeah, that's pretty much how I feel about it too.
