What's Going On In KDE Plasma Workspaces 2? 122

jrepin writes "While moving its codebase to Qt5, the KDE Development Platform is undergoing a number of changes that lead to a more modular codebase (called KDE Framework 5) on top of a hardware-accelerated graphics stack. In this post, you'll learn a bit about the status of Frameworks 5 and porting especially Plasma — that will be known as Plasma Workspaces 2, paying credit to its more convergent architecture."

    It's such a shame that there is only one desktop / window manager available for X. If only there were some choice in the matter. If only there were many different interfaces which could run atop the generic backend graphics stack. I just wish that they would release different environments which would allow me to choose the look of my UI depending on my preferences. Why hasn't there been any development put into some kind of Lightweight, X11 Desktop Environment? I am so very upset that there is only one desktop environment available for Linux and that I'll have to use it.
