Petition to make Plasma (KDE) the default DE
I'm sure it won't lead to anything, I really wish it would.
Plasma is a far better desktop than Gnome, for power users and newbies.
I cannot imagine a newbie coping with Gnome, for one in order to use the mutant tablet/desktop you have to 'adjust your workflow', the lack of such luxuries as a taskbar and minimise button will not go down well (you have to use memory to remember which windows you have open rather than a visual aid).
Also most KDE applications are far better, take Dolphin for example (the file manager).
Personally I would advise everyone to use kde-neon which is Ubuntu LTS based but has latest stable KDE/QT
