the best KDE distro is KDE Neon, Opensuse will be ok with the next release if you want something that will be stable for 4 years
Go Opensuse if you really need image preview in Firefox tho
KDE 4.12 seems to have good wayland support, you can enable it on KDE Neon in the login screen

>What's the best distro to use KDE with?
Unironically Arch. Manjaro if you don't want to fix your system because you foolishly updated something you shouldn't have.
>Does it support wayland?
Yes, however Wayland is shit. Don't use it (yet). It might be usable in a couple years.

Yes, no clue about laptops though.

>>not having thumbnails in the file picker is a fault of XFCE, not GTK.
It's a fault of both. Xfce didn't have to go with GTK.
>>Thunar is the only file manager that works on XFCE
If you're going to be mixing and matching heavily integrated applications then you might as well use Openbox at this point. You can't even remove Thunar without removing the entire DE.
>>I'm too fucking retarded to fix screen tearing

What do you mean by "thunar doesn't remember icon views"? I just tested this and it seems to work fine.
Catfish integrates fine with thunar for searching. I didn't even know it's an external program until now.
Xfwm already removed tearing in v4.13. The point is to have a light OS, and vsync wastes power so it shouldn't be on by default. Even (((windows))) has tearing unless you enable Aero. But it would definitely need an interface for enabling the tearfree option for intel and AMD.
Mugshot doesn't give errors on my machines. Perhaps this is the fault of your distro? Works fine on ZorinOS.

But I agree with
>Thunar does not shorten filenames leading to very inconsistent column widths
And also
>desktop thumbnails sometimes completely disappear and need a reboot to refresh
>suspending the PC will completely disable some background software until you launch it manually

>What do you mean by "thunar doesn't remember icon views"? I just tested this and it seems to work fine.
It does not remember individual folder view settings. If you set it to Icon view in the Pictures folder then every other folder is also gonna use the Icon view. If you set it to List view in the Documents folder then every other folder is also gonna use the List view.
>Catfish integrates fine with thunar for searching. I didn't even know it's an external program until now.
If it doesn't even have its own search bar but relies on an external application popup then I don't consider it finely integrated.
>Xfwm already removed tearing in v4.13.
I'll give you this, I have not used xfwm 4.13, but its screentearing is still a common complaint among new users today.
>Perhaps this is the fault of your distro? Works fine on ZorinOS.
Certainly not on Debian stretch, buster, and even unstable, and the application hasn't been updated since 2016 so I don't expect that to change.

I hate to piss on your parade but KDE is too bloated and here's why:

I start my computer and lightdm shows up and I type in my password and volla my XFCE4 desktop is right there, ready to be (ab)used.

I select KDE session in lightdm and type in my password and now I'm waiting for it to load while I am watching a splash screen and a cop of coffee later I've got a desktop ready to be used.

This is with a Ryzen 1600X running the OS off a SSD.

Too bad this is true, GTK has become a GNOME only toolkit and they are ruining it with no regard to anything else using it. I wouldn't be shocked if the GNOME developers intentionally broke parts of GTK to screw XFCE over at this point.

Used that for about a decade. It really is a great window manager.

What concrete steps can we take to get this proposal accepted?

Unfortunately as of July 2017, it still had way too many deps/useless things running for my taste in a base installation.

Or, maybe, the core should be as light as possible while retaining basic functionality. Last time I tried it, it still had a too many useless features and functions working in the background despite my attempts to trim it down.
