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.

"so much criticism from users


Criticism is good, even if comes from "fear". Most people are afraid of change, especially when there have been so many examples of changes for the worse, and so few of changes for the better. From my part, the only thing I don't want to see going missing is the broad configurability (which many people, especially Gnome users have historically been detesting so much), which I'm still ok with in the latest versions, and that only from a user's pov, since from the dev side it's pretty shiny.
"

Give it a rest. We aren't solving World Peace. Criticism in the Real World is called Engineering Judgement after Brainstorming sessions.

If you don't like it, join the Peace Corps.
