KDE "If you visited the Plasma project's outdated Web site in past weeks, you might have gotten the impression that the team behind the project to revitalize the KDE desktop hasn't been up to much these past months. Delve into KDE's SVN repository, mailing lists, or the mind of lead developer Aaron Seigo, however, and you'll find a more exciting story." More here.

@Kroc

So removing spyware makes you a UI design expert? As a guy who actually rights software and has to deal with human computer interaction I'm going to say it's _nowhere_ near a fundamental design flaw.

Your browser analogy is completely flawed. Icons keep getting bigger and bigger, mostly for aesthetic reasons. People have huge displays and hate tiny little icons. This trend is going to continue. Why not take advantage of those extra pixels those icons are using.

Please stay with fixing computers and leave HCI to people who actually know what they're doing and who's opinions actually matter.
