KDE Probably the most often misunderstood element of KDE4 is Plasma, the extensive widget engine that replaces the normal desktop and the Kicker panel from KDE 3.x. The entire KDE4 desktop is built up out of Plasmoids (yet another term for desk accessory), including the panel and the desktop itself - and it is the latter that has been causing quite some confusion. Where are my desktop icons? Update: Aaron Seigo has published a screencast showing how the FolderView Plasmoid behaves as a normal desktop, and how to make it so.

Looking forward to trying this out.... ;)

I have to agree, though, that Nepomuk is an ugly name...
I'd call it something like "Moose". Ok, moose are dopey but at least they're big and cuddly (and the very word "moose" sounds cuddly ;) )

Maybe give it the name of something delicious like Latte, Choc or Doughnut. "Nepomuk" sounds like a disease.. ;)
