 4.3 needs to be usable

 
 by brucelilly on: Mar 29 2009
 
Score 50%

The single biggest show-stopper is the lack of hide buttons for the taskbar. Without them, KDE 4.x is simply unusable. I'll explain: I need to be able to hide/unhide the taskbar at will, because it sometimes covers essential parts of program windows. I do NOT want program windows to obscure the taskbar, ever, so the checkbox for allowing that will always remain unchecked. Autohide is useless because it is nearly impossible to unhide the taskbar from a remote (VNC, krdc, etc.) client. The manual hide/unhide buttons are essential.

 It got to be faster

The crashes are over with KDE 4.1

The lack of features is mostly over with 4.2.

Now is the time for performance. KDE has still to prove that 4 is built to live with the user in fire and in water. in his new dual core box and in his older pentium 4 (or 3) workstation - and not to get replaced with 3.5.10 immediately after the wow is over

The last step needed to replace 3.5 on the real computers real people have in real life (and not in the shop window) KDE 4 has to approach the speed and lightweightness of KDE 3

Optimizations aside - good but not enough. the remaining step is option to disable the eye candy and remain with a thinner and faster desktop. without animations in every button or scrollbar. without round corners. without gradients. without transparency. with the feeling that i work in KDE (as lightning fast as i allways knew it) and not Vista or the bad dream of early KDE 4.

 highly unstable

I stopped using KDE because of the high unstability. I'm using XFCE 4 right now. Please do it stable again!

KDE4 used to be fairly unstable. Especially the horror show 4.0 kept crashing on me quite often.
But now with 4.2.2 i haven't had a single lockup or "plasma has crashed". Heck, the stability increased from 4.2.1 to 4.2.2 as much as it did from 4.0 to 4.2! (at least for me ;)

... maybe it's time to focus on usability, there are many things very annoying for final users, and I should write too much here to explain.

I can suggest you to take a look to these:

when the usability becomes improved, the team can focus over performances, stability and look&feel (already great)

Most of those were only a personal opinions and not usability suggestions. Almost all went actually to opposite direction, making the usability worse.

 look an feel thoughts

a flashy look may not be sexy to everybody. And it may depend : if you want to relax at home, a beautiful desktop may be good. If you are working, deeply concentrated, you may not need to be distracted by bells and whistles.

What is the KDE 4.x desktop aimed to ? Entertainment at home only ?

One additional and personal feeling : many of the KDE 4.2 desktop themes I see seem, to my own taste, bringing in vivid colors. When I need to concentrate, I need that the graphic environment does not try to attract me as advertisements use to do; in KDE 3.5, in Gnome, in Windows XP Classic desktop, you can have such a "quiet" desktop theme, which supplies informations you may need with a normal contrast, being pretty enough as well, but which allows you to forget it if you want to go deep into some heavy work project.

Just see the difference between the XP classic look and the modern look : in my company (scientific software company unfortunately using MS-Windows) we all rejected the XP modern look, too much shiny; not to mention Vista, for so many reasons, way too flashy look included.

Could'n t you supply, at some point of the KDE 4 roadmap, some 'KDE Classic' look and feel ?

To me, what is important is what I do with a computer (using applications for work or at home) : the desktop must be useful, supply services, but it must not pretend that it is that important. It must accept to be forgotten.

That is not about styles/themes, it is about color schemas. You can switch the color schema to neutral one like "Chrome" or make your own easily. You can get the UI as plain you want, the question is just about your taste how you want to configure the desktop. ;-)

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
