The desktop icon "system"is broken and has been since they added it. The behavior of the icons are inconsistent and aggravating when double click behavior is set for the DE. instead of whining and complaining about a feature that the KDE4 dens don't even feel we should have is a waste when there are DEs that already work fine and have for years.

Turning indexing off causes more annoyances than I can handle. The persistant notices that this app or that (some basic kde behind the scenes app that I could care less about) is a constant reminder that the KDE4 devs like to shove their technologies down our throats and we should just take it.

Last time I tried 4.7 I installed about 10 plasmoids and used an additional 5 from the install (not all at once) and of those 15 not one worked right. Half crashed and didn't even start to work, the rest either crashed after a little use or constantly resized and repositioned themselves when I logged out and back in.

I could of course deal with the issues and tweak what I can and try to turn off all of the ugly themes and use only the plasmoids that work but honesty kde3 is already there, no tweaking required.
