Plasma 2 Technology Preview demonstrates the current development status. The Plasma 2 user interfaces are built using QML and run on top of a fully hardware accelerated graphics stack using Qt5, QtQuick 2 and an OpenGL(-ES) scenegraph. Plasma 2 is a converged workspace shell that can run and switch between user interfaces for different formfactors, and makes the workspace adaptable to a given target device.

Plasma 2 is not a complete rewrite; it's a port to a new graphics system (a fully hardware accelerated OpenGL(ES) scenegraph).

Oh come on. What a load of crap!
Especially your statement about Gnome3 shows you are talking out of your ass.

Don't confuse your inability to understand and comprehend a different environment with usability- and/or technical problems.

Desktop linux surely has it's problems but it is nowhere nearly as broken as you describe.
