05: Linux: Trying out i3-kde!

I've been playing with KDE a lot lately, mostly as a sort of... DE for my i3 WM, for those of you who know what that means. I've been affectionately calling it "i3-kde", because that's pretty much exactly what it is. Shiny fancy bloat with a very restrictive tiling window manager delegating what my windows can and cannot do (exactly as I had configured it to do, amazingly).

Seeing my i3-wm config shine through in KDE is somewhat weird, but I think I rather like it. Makes me feel like all that time spent getting it to work "just so" was not only not a waste of time, but also very valuable in the long-run.

Even should I later decide KDE is too heavy and messy for my taste, that i3-wm config is still sitting there in my conf repo, just waiting for me to re-purpose it back to vanilla i3. :)
