KDE KDE developer Pinheiro revealed his ideas on the next KDE menu, dubbed 'Raptor'. "What is Raptor? Raptor is a an amazing project I have been working on in the last few days. It tries to be a fresh new way of finding your desktop applications, and interacting with its users." A design document (containing more screenshots) is also available [.pdf].

"Yeah, well maybe you've reformed. But you guys are the ones that taught us the bad habits in the first place. ;-P"

Well we certainly never taught you that weird backwards date thing - lol.

You're on your own on that score.

American innovation. And we can't even really blame it on Microsoft. ;-)

As a programmer, I absolutely *hate* the stupid backwards date thing!

..along with the missing "u"s (colour, flavour etc.) and the whole "z" thing (minimize, standardize etc.) ..ugh! ;)

The u's I kind of like. Unnecessary, but attractive. But it makes a great deal of *sense* to use z's when you mean the 'z' sound to be used. Using 's' is just too ambiguous.

Not that I think our flavour (oops!) of the language has any great degree of consistency. We really do need a phonetic overhaul.

Thom may disagree, though. Thom? :-)
