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.

Whilst criticism is good, too much of it has been uninformed, whiny, or simply useless.

too many people said thing along the lines "this sucks" , "I don't like it", "kde devs are being stupid, screw this I'm going to gnome".

Very few of these people actually said something about the specific features they didn't like or even tried learn more after being corrected of their FUD.

Also it would be kind of nice if everyone didn't expect kde4.1 to be designed PERSONALLY for them.
