The default KDE/Plasma 5 installation in Stretch, via task-kde-desktop, in
my opinion doesn't provide the best user experience because of the many
applications installed by default.
While the experience with the Plasma desktop is pretty good, the same
cannot be said for some KDE applications. To improve the situation, at
least for me, in different occasions I had to:
- manually install only the required KDE applications in a minimal Debian
- or manually remove all the unwanted KDE applications in the default KDE
installation (and break meta-packages).
There are metapackages of finer granularity available like kde-standard,
I'm looking at it from the eyes of an average computer user, what they
expect and what to do if something is not there that they
expect(synaptic), fixing users problems. kde-plasma-desktop covers most,
no PIM, that is a personal choice, like you say,install kde-standard if
you want PIM, the average user don't even know how to use a keyboard
like we do, less a personal information manager. They want to play
dvd's, cd's, watch youtube, play internet games and do Facebook, but
with a lot of them even Facebook is over their head. "Point-N-Click or
Tap" is all they want to do. The average user is not being creative or
productive while using the computer nor on this list.
