KDE "If you visited the Plasma project's outdated Web site in past weeks, you might have gotten the impression that the team behind the project to revitalize the KDE desktop hasn't been up to much these past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.

clicking the sub-icon to open a file duplicates and confuses double clicking an icon to open it too. Is there a difference between the two? The user cannot be 100% certain. I thought when he first clicked the sub-icon that it would "edit" the file instead of "open", because it would be just plain weird to also open the file when double-click would do the same.


Opening the file was just an example. For a source code file, the buttons might be:
* edit it
* compile it
* (for a header) run a search to see what #includes it
* commit it into the tree

Or for a sound file:
* play it
* put it in the playlist
* share it
* view metadata
