 Correctness

Just for reasons of political correcteness... the list of replacements or supplements does not appear in any particular order. It's not influenced by any personal preferences.

Actually, Slicker is http://www.slicker.org (which at the moment is simply an easier way to get to the sf site). A brand spanking new site will be up relatively shortly :)

 Kicker, of course!

I really like Kicker, specially since the version 3.2 when it can have a translucid background. Those Mac OS X-like replacements are cool for the eye, but I prefer Kicker for daily usage. It's not perfect, but works very well and I'm very satisfied with it. I can have the list of windows in it and click anyone to focus on it. I also use the virtual desktops and they're k00l. The "lock/log out" applet allows me to turn off my machine faster, and I like the digital clock applet. I also use the quick launcher applet to have small icons for those applications I don't use as often as the ones with big icons.

Kicker would probably look better if it could have a non-rectangular shape or if a background could be set without strange artifacts or without getting tiled, so you could make it look different and cooler. You can set a background, but it usually doesn't look perfectly, or at least I experience some strange effects sometimes in my KDE 3.2.2 compiled from sources.

 Not as functional

Having tried out several replacements (slicker, ksmoothdock, kxdocker and various karamba themes), I'm still with kicker.

They all seem to suffer from two problems:

- They have crazy configuration files / tools that don't seem to inherit basic KDE standards like icon themes, that make them a lot of work to get right

- They don't have the functionality of kicker... they should all just inherit kicker's applets, for example

You are absolutely right on both counts.

The original Slicker, for this is the only one I can really speak of ;), used a proprietary format, non-definable colours and other such tripe. This is being (very much) fixed in the rewrite.

As for the Kicker Applets, yup, we're building a Kicker Applet host, to enable us to use the old stuff alongside the new Slicker stuff. So, all in all, this is Better(TM), though of course to be Good(TM) it would have to be here now ;)

As always, the #slicker channel on irc.freenode.net is the place for discussion on Slicker.

Ah, I'm glad to hear it's back on the table :) It was the only one, in my opinion, that aimed at new functionality and good code first and foremost... well, until the original coder (I forget his name, he started it in the Gentoo forums) left!

I've tried a few (Ksmooth, Kool, KX...), they are cool and looks good, but I just can't leave the Kicker.

Or do you think Apple really has python configuration files that must be hand edited by the user? naaah ;)

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
