In the course of my several attempts to migrate from Debian to Devuan, and 
maybe upgrade to either Stretch or Ascii, I discovered that the new KDE	
Plasma completely deleted all my personal settings. Even after I reinstalled, 
it took a while to get my KDE desktop looking and behaving right; which in 
any case, is never very good. 

I like to keep another desktop on my system, so that I can always boot up into 
the other desktop, if I am having problems specific to TDE. I think LXDE 
works better than KDE, but KDE has programs that are sometimes more 
compatible with TDE. 

Every time I use the new KDE Plasma, I get so frustrated that I want to break 
something. The same goes for whenever I have to use other people's computers, 
especially if they run Windoze or the rotten Apple; and it's even worse when 
I have to use a public computer. 

The only thing that worries me is that I am becoming my own island, which is 
maybe not so good. I am thinking maybe of running a virtual box inside my 
Linux machine, in which I can run Windoze or the rotten Apple or some other 
Linux OS, just to keep up a little with changes that are going on "out 

Thank the Goddess for TDE! I believe I would have given up on computers 
altogether, if not for Trinity.
