A more succint way of putting the theming question: "Good apps, many apps, themes. Choose any two"

Its ironic how their hatred towards GNOME and their holy mission of conversion is causing real harm to their "Savior" project.

PS. the actual KDE community is wonderful and welcoming. Don't let those idiots on /r/linux and the like fool you, they are not part of KDE thankfully.

This is unacceptable behavior and needs to be called out no matter what side it advocates for or if their arguments hold any ground.

Internet is going crazy about GNOME "themes" again. The funniest part are all those toxic evangelist that try to convert frustrated people to another desktop platform.

You can be proud, you are doing a disservice to the KDE community and make them look like arrogant assholes.

Worst of all is that they are not even involved in KDE and if they tried, they would get kicked out. Evangelists only want to brew conflict between projects and trash the mainstream option to feel superior.

PSA: Restyling apps automatically doesn't work, and trying to do it is a dick move towards app developers.

Tired: “don’t forget to turn off your computer on dec 31st 1999!”
Wired: “don’t forget to turn off your computer on jan 1st 2038”

@federicomena Some of the Flatpak bashing seems to forget that both Flatpak and Snap are being made by groups of people who've had to put up with building distributions using RPM & DEB for decades.

“Breaking political silence” is what privileged people do when the shit finally hits their fan too.

The bane of the touch typist: having to type {:?} in debug println.

Flatpak + GNOME Builder have seriously spoiled me as a development tools. If a repo has a flatpak manifest I can just clone it in GNOME Builder and the dependencies are automatically fetched and the app is built with a push of a button, without having to install development libraries manually on my machine.
