SuSE, openSUSE The upcoming OpenSUSE 10.2 will feature a new KDE start menu with favorites and integrated search and application browser. It was developed by the KDE SUSE team after doing extensive usability testing on existing start menus - there will be a talk about it at aKademy 2006 next month. Note: The 2nd link has been updated, pointing to an alternative location. It works now.

In response to all these posts:

Change the theme/iconset/colour scheme to something you like.

What is wrong with you people?

Exactly. That's where KDE's power lies - in customization.

Every default in KDE is wrong. There's only so many things I'm wiling to change before it gets too much.

Do you ever think that may be KDE doesn't suite your personality, behavior, taste, or whatever?

Calling a DE is wrong in every default, because lots of it doesn't suite your preference is just wrong.

I use Gnome occasionally, at first it looks beautiful, but after sometime it looks bland. And I don't like it. But I won't call it wrong, just different preference of taste. So I don't use Gnome anymore. It just offer different kind of experience that doesn't suite me.
That's all.

Sidenote: I think a lot of people see things in black and white, right or wrong, false or true in area that supposed to be seen as preference or taste.

I'm kind of wondering that myself. The way I setup KDE looks rather different from the defaults. Not that I think the defaults are so atrocious and all that, it's just that tastes differ. The beauty of KDE is the extent that it allows me to do this, without having jump through fire and hoops. Open control center, customize to hearts content. It's really not rocket science.

Also, don't confuse SUSE KDE and actual KDE, SUSE puts in a bunch of their own little hacks and such, which is quite fine, they're certainly allowed to do that, but one shouldn't judge KDE's actual 'default' by looking solely at SUSE's.
