I am curious. What is advantage of using KDE spin to just installing KDE desktop on Fedora Workstation?

Cheers, Rafal

I guess you have Plasma 5 already installed. If you install Fedora Workstation you get Gnome 3 and then, later on, you can install any DE you want.

In other words there is no disadvantage of installing KDE on the existing Workstation running Gnome 3? Beside the obvious fact that all Gnome components will still be present and consume some disk space.

What about the default theme and some style improvements? Like you know, XFCE on Manjaro looks better then vanila one, and Gnome on Ubuntu looks... well, like Unity. Will just switching the desktop environment and desktop manager be equal to the experience that KDE spin provides?
