...or the "are you sure you want to quit? / don't ask this again".


This is my pet peeve with KDE, together with the restart/shutdown confirmation which is enabled by default. They are annoying because there was a time when KDE didn't have such nonsense dialogs.

I like the new feature where you can tell KDE to restart/shutdown but load another OS on the next boot (on a multi-boot machine).

AFAIK KDE SC 4.7 is the only desktop on the planet that can do that.

True. For example, in Windows I clicked on "Shutdown" and the system started to go down, without anything that I could do.
