Re: [trinity-users] A little KDE Plasma 5 tour, just for curiosity

I've no idea why there's a trend of making UI components too big, like
in touchscreen-based operating systems. OK, resolutions are growing,
icons should be bigger, but if they look too big on 2048x1536 screen
something is wrong.
In Libre/OpenOffice there's the same thing, but fortunately there's ui
scaling option.
