Bug parity achieved

Riddell: “Hey, Ade, don’t touch your quassel for a minute, ok? Right, switch to a different channel.” Me: “Sure” Riddell: “OK, see the Quassel notification icon?” Me: “Yeah, it’s throbbing.”

He walks over, checks that the notification icon is throbbing in the systray, and that I’ve got a konsole window at hand. “So, run top.” I switch windows, type “top” and hit enter.

Silence. “Um, what operating system is this?”

So Plasma 5 on FreeBSD looks sufficiently indistinguishable from KDE Neon, that it can fool even the conoisseur. But top(1) is different enough. This makes me really happy, since it shows that packaging vanilla upstream KDE software is the right thing to do for FreeBSD. Even better, the KDE Neon bug Riddell was trying to illustrate to me, is also present on FreeBSD with Plasma 5 on Intel graphics (although I use the scfb driver for now). Achieving bug parity is quite a milestone.
