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.

I have no problem with doing things the same way as the most popular operating system of all time. It makes sense to copy what works.

What surprises me is that someone thought it necessary to explain three times (with video and pictures) the operation of a feature copied from the most common operating system of all time.
