    Thumbs up

    KDE 4.10 will be a very nice release, the only thing I'm still missing is a good RAW editor....

    Can I offer even a better improvement than everything's been done before?

    Let's remove nepumok and other semantic desktop features. They hurt.

    Default Death to Sematic Desktops

    I love KDE, but the first thing I do when I install a new distrubtion is to disable anything remotely connected to the semantic desktop. For me they just get in the way

    You know, I must say that I don't remember any real issues I've had with semantic desktop stuff personally since either 4.6 or 4.7 and I use Kontact and Bangarang and such.

    Which can't be enabled if you want fully functional KMail... Which is probably still the best, full featured, GUI mail client for Linux.

    You have search option in KMenu too, besides, Alt+F2 combination is standard on basically all desktop environments (Enlightment, Gnome, KDE, XFCE), not knowing it is like not knowing about Alt+F4...

    Kickoff's search actually doesnt link into nepomuk (atleast on my system, if it does on yours please explain how) and an email regarding integrating Krunner (and by extension then, Nepomuk) into Kickoff was answered with "Someone would need to implement it" and nothing more.

    And do you really think its that common? ive only ever used KDE basically since 4.0 and I didnt really learn about alt-f2 for Krunner until last year and I still forget about it fairly often.
