KDE "If you run KDE, you aren't just stuck with the standard 'kicker' panel to operate as your app launcher and taskbar. There are a bunch of nice panel replacements that will spice up your desktop nicely. The ones that I've used and tested are kooldock, kxdocker and kiba-dock. So, what do these docks do, and what's cool about them?"

I thought maybe Sears was copying Dell and starting to get involved with Linux. They would have to have extra pockets in the front for my flash drives. ;}

"""

It's not a Kenmore, and there is no info on the OS on this page, but:

I recall there being, a few years ago, a 333MHz Pentium II based Internet Refrigerator with 128MB of RAM that came with Linux pre-installed.

Once our Konsumables start coming with RFID tags, I could see these things doing inventory control, ordering in Kabbage, Korn, and Krumpets at the appropriate times.

You'll have to write the KiceTray application yourself, though.
