Sabayon 15.11 KDE: hot, hotter and burnt

Gentoo
Reviews

Sabayon 15.11 KDE left quite contradictory impressions on me.

On the positive side, KDE 5, or Plasma 5 in this operating system was very much polished. I tried Plasma 5 in Kubuntu several times, but felt myself very uncomfortable there. Up until now I thought that Plasma 5 is a bit too unpolished. Sabayon 15.11 KDE fixed that my prejudice. I know now that KDE5 is the Desktop Envirnment everyone can use. Maybe that's the reason for Kubuntu team to revisit their approach.
