KDE Disappointed with KDE 4's performance and other shortcomings, Timothy Pearson continued KDE 3.5 development under the name Trinity. 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.

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.

This is my number one annoyance with most Windows program installers. Too many of them don't give you the option of whether or not to spam the desktop/quicklaunch with icons. And too many of them don't give you the option of selecting the sub-directory of the Start Menu to put the icons into. It's very frustrating having to continuously remove icons, move icons, delete folders, etc.

Even worse is that if you move icons around on the Start Menu to keep things organised, the icons are not removed when the app is uninstalled. ;)

How anyone can find the Windows Start Menu and application management to be "easy" or "intuitive" is beyond me.
