KDE KDE 4.1, which is supposed to become the KDE4 version usable by 'normal' people, is coming at the end of July. When Ars reviewed the beta release, they were positive in that it was moving forward at an "extraordinary pace". Despite the positive notions in the news, many seem to have problems actually seeing all the new stuff being done in KDE4 - just like how people fail to see the massive amount of work put into Vista. KDE developer Rafael Fernandez Lopez (I'm sorry for the lack of diacritical marks, an OSNews bug we're working on) decided to put together a screencast showing off all the new stuff coming in KDE 4.1.

There's a at least a few 'Holy sh!t, how come no-body thought of doing that before?!?' moments in that video.
No, there are not (at least if you don't live under a rock and sometimes use other OSes).

The thumbnail scaler?
Done in iPhoto for years.

The folder widget ('plasmoid')
This is not the first atempt to do something like this. IIRC when I used LiteStep under Windows it had something similar.

The clear way doplhin organizes items by type?

Looks like the Windows Explorer to me.
