januz added a comment to D10438: reserve space for checkable widgets in menu items.

IMO, the last version looks better than the current menu. That said, I think the top/bottom paddings are still too tight, I would try adding 2-3px for each.
It's true that there's a question of taste but more whitespace is generally a good thing (unless you go overboard and start making huge widgets). A couple more pixels in the menus will help focus the elements better (by framing them in negative space), it will make the ui look less "full of stuff" and less tense.

januz added a comment to D10429: Disable the title bar separator by default.

I can't +1 this hard enough. There's no point in having a line separating the titlebar from the window. For users that want their titlebars the same color as the window it just gets in the way, and for users that want a clear separation it adds nothing (since there's already the background color change to visually separate them).

Agree with the text not being useful for small sizes, but it could look good for a large logo-style image (like say, a 256px logo on the wiki/homepage).
A cassette is definitely an interesting idea for an icon. At least it's not another musical note or play icon :)

@januz

Not sure if there's still a lot of Unity refugees, a lot people seem to have settled on Gnome+dash to dock (and other extensions).

I say there is still a LOT of people who havent switched yet because Unity is deployed in a massive amount of LTS users. I think there have been a lot of people to transition already but still a huge amount that haven't.

That said, it shouldn't be too complicated to make a unity look and feel for plasma (following @michaeltunnell's video).

januz updated the diff for D6764: Use a smaller font size for digital clock plasmoid.

Reducing the scope of this patch a bit, it now sets the clock fontsize to a fixed value. This prevents all the layout issues from relative scales. The code changes now are minimal, so it won't add pile more complexity on the code.
I'll continue working on the rewrite when I have some free time again, and submit a patch when/if I have feature parity with the current clock.

The grid with margins is the best IMO. It's the best use of screen space (and it looks better than the others) . I totally agree with the frame-in-frame problem (I wish dolphin looked more like your mockup!), but I think that adding too many lines can also end up adding visual noise.
