Finally, the KDE project has released KDE Plasma 5, a major new version of the venerable K Desktop Environment.

Plasma 5 arrives in the middle of an ongoing debate about the future of the Linux desktop. On one hand there are the brand new desktop paradigms represented by GNOME and Unity. Both break from the traditional desktop model in significant ways, and both attempt to create interfaces that will work on the desktop and the much-anticipated, tablet-based future (which may or may not ever arrive).

My 2 cents worth.

 

I for 1 love KDE, It is easy to navigate user friendly and you can customize any way you like without too much fuss in most cases its click n point to download the whatever ( skins themes etc) then applying them. Argue all you like about other Desktops try them out then try KDE. Please note you will need more than 1 gb ram.

 

Video not my work.

i think the point of using linux is to make computer work in lighter environment..

kde 5 is really heavy on s/m specially netrunner(latest)

but its also true that everyone wants their desktop to be fancy and cool.

so i think

mint17 qiana cinnamon has the right balance..its amazing

very light(but not ugly),really fast,and really low on ram(250 mb at start),
