The openSUSE community KDE team has started preparations to move the default desktop from the Plasma Workspace 4.x to Plasma 5. In order to assist this move, please tell us about the visual experience with Plasma 5.

This is important as Plasma 5 relies more heavily on openGL and that in turn might expose driver or other issues down the stack. 

Your vote has been cast for this poll. Thank you for voting on this poll.

How is your Plasma 5 visual experience?

I typed a couple of paragraphs to explain, but in trying to edit (clicked HTML icon) I was taken to a blank new URL, and on using the back button, the entirety of my work had disappeared.

In summary, I have nothing good to say about Breeze in comparing Breeze to Elarun. Elarun is beautiful. Breeze is lifeless low contrast. NAICT, it's using gray text instead of black, which on the mostly gray backgrounds seems designed to produce eyestrain for users of optimally adjusted displays. The side and bottom window borders I've been told do exist are functionally invisible here except for windows whose background colors differ from desktop and other windows.

Breeze looks no better on Fedora or Kubuntu, so I'm not blaming openSUSE's dedicated packagers, just reporting my visual experience.

Visuals are nice, I have problems with sreecn tearing and flickering. I don't know if it is only plasma 5 - based, but I have much less issues with cinnamon. I (would) love to use Plasma 5, and if not for these issues, it would be my favourite linux desktop environment. (customized opensuse dark theme)
