October 14, KDE celebrates its 20th birthday.

A 20 Year Timeline of KDE

My first KDE was probably 3.3 and i worked for some years with 3.5.x
I really liked it. lots of good feelings when I think back :)

I  still have mandrake 5.2  (leeloo) on cd with the floppy's, manual, etc  (kde 1.0 enhanced), back then mandrake was based on redhat 5.2 (apollo). I stopped using mandrake at version 9 (dolphin)

I have quite a few distro's with kde 1.0 :)

I used kde long time also, redhat, mandrake, suse, kanotix and so on but when kde 4 came it became to bloated for my purpose, I jumped over board and landed on xfce.

What is the point of KDE, it seems to be in continuous development never quite getting there. Some of the K apps are very good but a lot come with piles of unneeded dependencies. It was good to see Digikam with the latest Qt5 version minimising it's KDE dependencies  and probably getting more users as a result, I started using it again a few months back I also use Kwin and  sddm but not much else. I recently thought I would try Plasma-desktop it looks OK but nested menus, twenty years of development and that is  progress ? I also added widgets to the panel but gave up trying to find out how to remove them, something so simple on any other desktop, progress, I don't think so. I stopped using KDE 8 years ago and don't see any reason to go back.

Hello,
running a gtk2-based application in a gtk3-based GUI is nothing special.
But did you ever try to install a kde3-based application in KDE4?

Yes, dropping all existing third-party applications in favour of a new GUI is crazy, but it allows to renew all applications.
The newer is better, isn't it?

On the other hand all my favourite apps now are gkt-based ... Uh, oh!
