KDE KDE 4.0 RC1 has been released. "The KDE Community is happy to announce the immediate availability of the first release candidate for KDE 4.0. This release candidate marks that the majority of the components of KDE 4.0 are now approaching release quality. While the final bits of Plasma, the brand new desktop shell and panel in KDE 4, are falling into place, the KDE community decided to publish a first release candidate for the KDE 4.0 Desktop. Release Candidate 1 is the first preview of KDE 4.0 which is suitable for general use and discovering the improvements that have taken place all over the KDE codebase. The KDE Development Platform, comprising the basis for developing KDE applications, is frozen and is now of release quality." You want see Plasma panel? You get see Plasma panel!

Stop clicking. Start typing.

Well, it shouldn't be problem for me. But it is a problem for most of our grandparents, parents and other that aren't into computer. There is no way for them to know the name of applications and they don't care about that. Old way works best for them.

Bull. If they had no idea what they were looking for, they wouldn't be able to find it in the menu. Of course they know what they want to open. They don't need to know the name of the program, just what it does. Starting to type "internet" (you'll only need to type the first letter or two) will bring up firefox and so on.

Ever tried to teach an elderly person how to use the mouse? It is way harder than teaching them the keyboard. Everyone can hunt and peck. The only reason we're all still using the mouse is because keyboard interfaces used to be very unintuitive.
