Hey Jake, thanks for this excellent article!

However I have found that your explanation about the naming convention "KDE SC 5" is not really correct. There is no "KDE Software Compilation" anymore. instead the devs split KDE 5 into three components: KDE Frameworks, KDE Plasma and KDE Applications. So now there's not one single name for it all... I wonder how they imagine to call their entire DE then; I guess it should be KDE Plasma 5. Kind of a turmoil if you ask me :/
