So after using #GNOME since the pre-1.0 days, I think I'm finally dropping it entirely. The core developers' war against customization has gone too far, GNOME has become the Apple of open source. I'm not a fan of the walled-garden approach, and the push for everything to use #libadwaita is too much.
Hey, I'm working on a #GNOME app to configure GRUB, and I could use some help with the UI. Anyone out there good with #Glade or GNOME Builder's UI Designer and want to help me make this?
#GNOME, I love you, but why did I have to hack the source code for libadwaita to get GNOME To Do to respect my theme? That's incredibly user-hostile.
You know, I've used both #GNOME and #KDE quite a bit, and I find myself always going back to GNOME, and I think it comes down to "GTK+ is a better toolkit than Qt". Some of that comes from my preference for free software, but GTK+ is also just better looking and less visually glitchy than Qt in my experience. The weird thing is, my ideal desktop would be KDE Plasma rewritten to use GTK+ instead of Qt, with mostly KDE apps (except KDE PIM, Kmail is... not good).
