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.

Nepomuk is a town in Czech Republic (Nepomuk KDE is named after Jan of Nepomuk, who was born in the town). Maybe to you it sounds silly, but keep in mind that to me for example Tulsa sounds silly too.

They're both retarding sounding names for actual product names, so you won't get me defending someone's pet project named after any city, town or country.

I am sure you won't defend Windows 95 (codenamed Chicago), or Manhattan project for that matter. ;)
