    Thanks! The most changes to Breeze theme have been consistency fixes between QtWidgets and QtQuick apps. They now have more shared values, so they look more coherent together.

    Thank you for the nice comment. <3 Don't be afraid to share praise to FOSS devs, unfortunately most things we hear is when things are not working. ;P Funny how few nice words can go a long way!...

    Also like I said in other comment, I think even bug reports are contributions, so don't be afraid to make bug reports. :) They're really helpful!

    And yes Steam Deck uses Plasma! :)

    I wish I had the time and energy to contribute to FOSS like I used to years ago

    In my opinion, every single bug report is a contribution. So do not hesitate to report bugs, it's what keeps us on our toes! Especially crash reports with proper backtrace is gold! Dev systems can often be very "default" so we don't change that many things and something will get past us.

    I am also interested in the Cosmic DE, will definitely give it a try. IMO Linux desktops don't (nor shouldn't) compete, it's more a friendly rivalry where we just try to one up each other and have a laugh about it later. :D

    Hope you're enjoying Plasma 6! :)

    I forgot to share this here earlier.. :D It's a writeup about what I did for Plasma 6 in general. Written in semi-tired state but maybe you find it interesting.

    It's full of ads. I get "buy nitro" spam quite often. It's distracting, annoying, etc.

    Everything is animated and bouncy and I find it super distracting. Yes, I have disabled animations but sometimes things still seep through.

    All kinds of annoying colorful bullshit everywhere: "super reactions," avatar borders (who the hell buys these), etc. I can tone down the saturation but it makes the whole app gray, which is not useful either.

    The group list sidebar is not very useful if you have more than 5 groups. It's a mess.

    On top of that, everyone and their grandma uses discord now for various projects and some people expect bugs to be reported through discord. What the hell happened to forums???

    In general it's hell for my ADHD brain and I hate it.

    Awful app getting worse? Surprise... Using Discord makes me really frustrated every time I have to interact with it. I hope eventually they break it so bad nobody wants to use it.

    We wanted a stable base to work cool things on. It was way better to concentrate on only one thing at the time, which in this case was porting from Qt 5 to Qt 6.

    More cool stuff will come, but we wanted Plasma 6.0 to be "stability first."

    (Note that this is the general vibe i've been getting and not any official statement, im just one dev in the bucket of many KDE devs)

    I just avoid commenting in "internet debates". Arguing on internet is useless and everyone looks like a fool.

    Aseprite is a good tool, and pixel art is not that hard to grasp. It can be quite rewarding to create, so I think you made the right decision.

    One could use the generated stuff as placeholders but not as final product since your own creations will always be exactly what you want them to be. And if not, there's bazillion artists there who will be willing to work with you, and don't necessarily ask much money either, if any at all.

    Since your app is going to be free (as in freedom and beer) and open source, you have even better chance to get artists help you. It requires some talking with people, but well made art is a delight to see.

    I think "AI" generated art often looks awful and unprofessional. As in, it looks like the developer doesn't really care, just wanted to throw something out there.
