KDE is adding native tiling support. I think it’s a good way to introduce users to the benefits of a tiling window manager, but knowing KDE’s track record of new features, I expect it to be riddled with bugs and take a while to become fully stable. But once it is ironed out, hopefully it turns a lot of people on to ditching the desktop and switching to a WM-only setup.
