GNOME and KDE: In Search of the Perfect Menu

,----[ Quote ]
| Since the 4.0 release, KDE has defaulted to the Kickoff 
| menu. Inspired by the Windows Vista menu, Kickoff divides 
| the menu into five separate views: Favorites; 
| Applications; Computer, which includes system settings and 
| common destinations in the directory structure; Recently 
| Used, which includes both applications and documents, and 
| Leave, which includes a number of options for what to do 
| when you have finished your work.
| In each view, only one menu level is visible at the time, 
| which means that you must use the arrows at each side to 
| move through the menus. In addition, a search menu with 
| tab completion helps you to find items quickly. 


Run OS X Dashboard Widgets In Ubuntu

| I found some widgets running through kludgets are resource 
| hogs â not so much that they slow the system down, but 
| still more usage than probably needed for long periods.
| As such, i recommend opening Kludgets only when you want 
| access to your screenlets. 



KDE 4 menu development

,----[ Quote ]
| The main goals of Raptor are clear: to provide a high quality menu
| everyone will like. This includes an intelligent "My Favourite" section
| (intelligent means really intelligent and not the stuff available today),
| a skin supported menu (png or svg, colour, layout), fancy effects ("rain
| in the menu", whatever that means) and of course searching of all entries
| - at the moment implemented with strigi (which was mentioned pretty often
| at akademy - hope it gets even more boost!).


Kickoff Start Menu Research - Sneak Preview (Flash animation)

,----[ Quote ]
| OpenSUSE 10.2 will have a redesigned KDE start menu created by the KDE
| and usability team at SUSE, after doing usability testing with other
| start menus. We now have a working prototype, code-named 'Kickoff'
| (started during world soccer championship, obviously), which is
| currently being tested with real users in the SUSE usability lab.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
