KDE "KDE 4.1 will be what everyone expected 4.0 to be - a fully functional revolutionary Linux desktop. I took a look at the revision 777000 of this desktop environment and what you get is a visual changelog describing the current progress in terms of look and feel and the features." It has Bejeweled KDiamond? I'm sold.

Everything takes up real-estate, the new menu is one of the most awful things I've seen and I still can't see any good reason to switch to it.


Exactly! This is the one thing I don't like about KDE. Everyone else, windows included, seems to have figured out the value of real-estate on the screen. KDE has not. Other than that I just love it.

"Everyone else, windows included, seems to have figured out the value of real-estate on the screen."

Can you explain why you need screen estate on a desktop with no applications running (which is what you seem to imply)?
I can only see the "screen estate" jibe as being an issue within a browser when you've got a plethera of toolbars removing space required for the webpage.
Personally once i've selected the menu, that is what i want to see because i am looking for something on it, the desktop behind it is irrelevant.
