sorry current gnome environment is inefficient, just install ubuntu 20.04 and try to browse web, u will end up to see 4 layered bars, it is just a waste of space, covering all the important web content.

Gome = systemd and systemd is such a bad concept. Ubuntu is rushing into a tangle of monolithism they have no control over and where we have no choices. Only it gets worse....not only does it mean a webserver and a syslog server and policy control via dbus instead of permissions.....now Linux Poettering wants to break everything I've got using user's home directories. And just after me changing our corproate platform from Redhat to Ubuntu!

KDE is my preferred desktop. If Ubuntu switched to KDE, I would use it.

Plasma can emulate any desktop environment and will be much more friendly to Unity users. Also, tests have proven that although KDE is considered a heavyweight desktop, it runs smoothly on the Raspberry Pi, while GNOME is slow and buggy on they Rpi.

Kde plasma is one of the best desktop environments out there and should be default for majority of Linux based operating systems.

There are insufficient words in the English language to say how much I despise GNOME 3.x. Many years ago I started out using KDE, then switched to Gnome 2.x when it came out. I liked Gnome 2.x because it had all the features I needed, but in a smaller tighter footprint. Gnome 3.x is a mirror opposite of 2.x. It takes and throws out all the usability in a bloated code base.

KDE Plasma is a better experience. More customizable, faster, and extensible, and with Canonical's involvement would become much more polished and standardized.
