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.

Or they could wait till 4.2...or even SHOCK HORROR expand the folder view as a plasmoid (not a container) to fit the whole screen.

But yeah, I know what you mean about the whingers, pragmatism won't stop their noise.
