Today the first third major update of the Trinity Desktop Environment is released, providing an alternative upgrade path for KDE users who do not feel comfortable with KDE 4.

"So, I ask you once again, why do you hold this apparent double standard, when the KDE menus are actually easier to use?
"Easier to use" cannot possibly be a factual statement. Please don't present it as such - it dilutes the discussion. "

I can't think of anyone, objectively, who would claim with a straight face that finding the PDF viewer application under menu entries:

Start => All Programs => Adobe => Acrobat Reader

... is somehow "easier" than finding it under

Start => Office => Document viewer (Okular)

Seriously, Thom, get off your high horse.

Except, of course, that by default, Adobe dumps a shortcut on the desktop. And, on top of that, if I recall correctly, a shortcut is dumped in /programs, not in /programs/adobe.

Other than that - this is beyond silly. Opening an extra menu? Are you guys (BOTH of you) fcuking kidding me?

How irksome is it when that happens ... programs having the audacity to litter your desktop (and even worse, the ONLY desktop you get under most desktop software) with their icons (unless you tell them otherwise).

If I want an icon on a desktop, or in a quickstart on the panel, then at my discretion I will put one on whichever desktop or quickstart panel I want it to appear (I can have any number of differently set-up desktops or quickstart panels, BTW).

Seriously, you Windows users do have to put up with a pretty braindead and annoying desktop.
