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.

Sorry to disturb your soul in this way, but that is what i feel about linux desktop right now and I find gnome 3 to be the most useless *mac simplicity-wannabe clone* out there.

Bling bling, they caught your eyes, bling bling.

Also linux has this 'extremes' history:
"if it works, fuck it and lets redesign or bloat it!"
"if it works, fuck it and lets abandon it!"
"if it doesnt work, fuck it, why would YOU want that?"

But there are tons and tons of other more important problems in Linux than a bunch of crippled desktop environment. And maybe you really don't know how a desktop should be used for working, NOT FIXING IT!
