    You can find idiots in every group. Usually, however, these are always just the loud minority. I bet the majority of users simply use what they want and stay completely out of any discussions.

    For my part, I have always used KDE / Plasma and I will continue to do so. Gnome just doesn’t appeal to me. Is Gnome therefore bad? No. I just prefer something else. Just like I use a different editor instead of vim, for example.

      This is how it should be. Accepting that not everything is your cup of tea, but recognising that it has its place, others value it, and it contributes to the Linux ecosystem.

      I don’t have any use-case for a tiling window manager, for example, but I have zero intention of shitting all over various TWM projects whenever they’re brought up.

      I understand that Gnome kinda goes against the traditional desktop paradigm, and some people really aren’t into that, but those people can just… not use it. I don’t get what all the hate is about.

        I feel the same way. I think tiling is useless (for me). Except in the terminal emulator. Strangely enough, I use it there.

        Which is not a bad thing at first. Just because something has been done for years doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better.

        The Helix editor, for example, uses the selection → action model. With vim, it is exactly the opposite. That’s why I prefer Helix. And yes, this is my own subjective opinion.
