    Let me cut the debate for a lot of people, the best desktop is what YOU like and works for you. Now relax.

      The fact that there are so many well functioning options for a DE that this can be an argument, is such a great thing.

        Absolutely. I use gnome on all of my laptops and plasma on both of my desktops. End of story. Gnome is fantastic for touch screens and plasma is amazing for desktops.

          Gnome is great for more than touch screens, it’s amazing with trackpads, and is extremely keyboard-focused. I’ve not really found a usecase where it doesn’t work well.

    I appreciate titles that let you know you don’t need to waste time watching it.

      The title of the video is actually “Plasma 6.1: the BEST LINUX DESKTOP (in my opinion)” and the video is not about argument what’s the best. It’s just regular coverage of the release. Just a little clickbait

        I might be the minority, but I’m more inclined to click a video that says “Plasma 6.1: Release, features and my opinions” than one that proclaims it THE BEST THING (unless it’s from a creator I already know and like anyway, they get a pass as long as the content is good)

          Yes, but YouTube is kind of shit these days with how it works for creators and quite often getting more views is a matter of setting clickbait title and thumbnail. He actually is one of the biggest Linux creators on yt

    At least it’s not one of those stupid “reaction face” thumbnails. A clickbait title is easy enough to parse as “not worth my time” but those punchable face thumbnails? Fuck me, the person that started that trend needs to find the nearest running belt sander and start licking.

    You know, … I use PaperWM. I have no idea what those overlapping windows are … which makes it THE BEST LINUX DESKTOP for me

      I just discovered PaperWM a few weeks ago and I’m hooked. I can’t switch away from Gnome unless another tiling scrolling WM beats it. I hope someone makes a version of it for Cosmic.

        I heard the wayland compositor niri is inspired by paperwm, fyi. Also I doubt that cosmic will be very extendable when it releases, since most components are rewritten in rust and compiled, thus unless they specifically add some sort of scripting support extensions wont happen as easily as on gnome

    Depends on what is most desired. Plasma is the most complete and feature rich desktop experience on Linux at the moment. The most polished one? Certainly not.
