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.

It's one thing if potential customers have an open mind and are willing to be convinced, or be satisfied with anything less than "I DEMAND FEATURE X or else kde4 sucks".

These people are poisonous not because they are potential customers, more becasue they are positively hostile to anything that does not suit their particular desires.

Note that there are lots of people that had gennuine queries and had constructive criticism, or didn't go on a rampage when they were told feature x is not in kde4.1
