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.

Windows 95 was released last century, which also happens to be last millennium. Over a decade ago. Are these terms you understand?

The KDE 4.1 FolderView Plasmoid is a copy of what Windows was doing last decade, century, and millennium. Does that penetrate the cotton in your ears?
