Phoronix offers some criticism of KDE software, and this is how KDE deals with it
About a month ago, Eric Griffith posted an article on Phoronix where he compared Fedora’s KDE spin to the main Fedora Workstation which uses GNOME.

And since KDE does listen to user feedback if it makes sense, we decided we should do something about it.
