KDE seems to suffer a lot from "elitism" -- create something different, 
even if it is dysfunctional.

At least then you can say you are "not Windows" even if it is 
detrimental to the user experience.

An example is the Windows Switchers. There is a small dozen of different 
switchers you can use and all of them are dysfunctional.

There are Small Icons and there are Big Icons but the small icons are 
too small and the big icons are too big. Where are the middle icons? Of 
course, that would be too mundane, wouldn't it.

So now you have to go into a file on /usr/share/something and edit the 
QML file for the big icons (they are called large on the filesystem). 
Then you can reduce the icon size to 80 or 64 or something and it will 

Then finally you have a functional window switcher.
