I too don't consider this in any way related to a tiling WM.

I don't have hard numbers, but at my last employer, we sold commercial Linux software for a variety of *very* big enterprises (Mostly American, but a few German too) that use RHEL and Ubuntu internally. Maybe not for everything, but these companies had four and five figure Linux workstation deployments.

martinsotirov added a comment to D21813: RFC: Consider adding more padding to the desktop theme.

I think Plasma needs a whole lot more padding all over the place, not just in the notifications, but I guess there must be some kind of compromise with all the people who like more cramped UIs.

martinsotirov added a comment to T11081: Finalize the transition to Wayland and embrace the future of desktop.

This is also somewhat of a prerequisite for T11057 I think.

martinsotirov added a comment to T11102: KDE cli-gui interface and it's integration in KDE ecosystem.

I think you're underestimating what it takes to make a good and useful GUI application. It's usually much more than just a visual representation of a CLI tool.

Agree about the redundancy and reinventing of the wheel but that's how it is in open-source.

I actually consider this a part of T11057 because something like this is a must for tablets.

martinsotirov added a comment to T10201: Window titlebars.

Edit: here there is a mockup, the title bar height is the same, the icons are smaller and the clickable are is bigger and change background color when hovering. It feels better to me:

I like that. Having the clickable area extend to the end of the frame like on Windows is better from a usability standpoint because you don't have to aim so precisely. Especially if your window is maximized you can just jam your mouse in the corner and click to close.
