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.

I understand people seeing it as a Vista look being black with widgets but what most people dont know is Nuno likes black.

Plasma's default theme in 4.1 is black panels which fade to the corners more solid, dont know about you but thats about as close as it gets to looking like Vista.
