KDE Probably the most often misunderstood element of KDE4 is Plasma, the extensive widget engine that replaces the normal desktop and the Kicker panel from KDE 3.x. The entire KDE4 desktop is built up out of Plasmoids (yet another term for desk accessory), including the panel and the desktop itself - and it is the latter that has been causing quite some confusion. Where are my desktop icons? Update: Aaron Seigo has published a screencast showing how the FolderView Plasmoid behaves as a normal desktop, and how to make it so.

Will scroll bar be implemented soon?

Seconded. That was the second thing I thought when first trying FolderView. The first thing I thought was "wow finally a desktop plasma thingy for which I can actually see the point". I'm certainly looking forward to KDE 4.1 or 4.2

a preliminary patch was posted just yesterday that adds scrollbar goodness to folderview. there's still a few issues to work out with the patch, but it's almost certainly to make it in for 4.1.0, perhaps even for the upcoming beta2.
