 Don'T copy

Dont't copy the usability sins of Microsoft. their XP menu is crap. We don't need a popup menu as we als ready have the iconbar.

KDE shall not follow this path.

If you in stead of instantly saying "XP iS Teh Sux0rz" actually look at this, it is not a copy of the XP menu. This re-design has been done with usability in mind (read the writeups on the first newMenu to see what I mean), and is thus not a copy of the XP one, which I totally agree is amazingly pants.

I agree with this opinion, actually. I don't use kmenu at all... well quite rarely. Though for those who are coming to linux from winxp it can be useful.... but it will make the adaptation process quite slow.

I do use it quite a lot, as do most people I know who use KDE, simply because I use a lot more more than the three programs in my quick-launch. I do not wish to clutter my system with unnessecary icons. So, from that point of view, no matter if others use it or not is not the case, the K Menu is a fact, and why not make it the most usable it can be? Anything else would be rather silly.

Actually I think WinXP's Start Menu is pretty good. It's not configurable enough (or I just don't know - I'm using Windows like once per year ;).

This new menu looks great (imho).

Well, it's kinda configurable, but not in a way that could make it as usable as this potentially would be :) Also, with the bottom rearranged the way shown here, it would present not just a good piece of usability, but also a nice bit of eyecandy ;)

Pass on the two last ones, unfortunately, but for the first one about what to put in the free place.

Why not do what you did originally: Put a Recently used applications or Most used applications list there? Just without the coloured backgrounds, which made it look a bit silly.

Again, of course, I have to comment on the colours you have chosen ;) This time, however, it's more positive, because the way you have done it here is viable from a programatical point of view: You can use the list background and list alternative background to do this (in this case, of course, it would mean that you had a background in lists that was standard blue and alternative yellow, but that's a whole different discussion to get into ;) ).

I'm still not so sure about the way you have chosen to do the bottom, though. It's just the very small space available for the icon text... With the amount of space there, you won't even have space to write Documents (there is hardly room to write mnt). Why not just let it be as such, with the description text still only showing up on mouseover:

....description text....

The colors should adhere to the current KE colour scheme. If you deviate from them your menu will look out of place in different colour schemes.

The colors make it look very childish. Perhaps go with a somewhat more serious (but boring) color scheme, like this:

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
