KDE begin the 15-Minute Bug Initiative to make Plasma great

Quoting: ShmerlI think by today's standards HDDs are horribly slow for boot times anyway. Why would you want to boot from one? Booting / startup is the most I/O intensive phase. SSDs are totally a huge benefit for that.

I have many computers around still using HDDs and with no plans to upgrade, they are totally usable with Xfce or Mate. My main desktop computer uses mostly SSDs except for the home partition and it is able to start any software instantly, except KDE and Eclipse.

Even the bloated Gnome is able to boot much faster than KDE on the same hardware, but I won't insist on the topic since many people seem to be okay with that. It's a feature, not a bug.

My main issue with KDE is the slowness to boot when compared to any other DE, it is unusable on systems where the home partition is not stored in a local SSD. However, boot times on the Deck will probably be acceptable.

I didn't have the chance to play Zork as a kid, but I did it for the first time some years ago. It's a unique experience that I recommend. Now you can do it on Linux exclusive multiplayer!

I mean the server is exclusive, according to the readme:
Quote...there is a telnet server called multizorkd...This probably only works on Linux/Unix systems...

Fingeance is a fishy shoot 'em up that needs team-play rather than twitch-reflexes

The gamepad support it's broken, at least for me. It works perfect under wine though. Maybe I'll play it with the kids at the weekend.
